I first saw Jonathan Green's work on a card I purchased for my mother in 1998. His artwork vividly captures African-Americans dancing, working and worshipping. I almost feel the breeze that teases the dress of the woman as she walks torwards her house in "Homecoming." I highly recommend "Gullah Images" as a wonderful introduction to a talented artist from South Carolina.

When my sisters were little they loved a show on Nickelodeon called "Gullah Gullah Island." A few years later when my mom and I were reading about some of South Carolina's coastal islands, we found out that the Gullah subculture actually exists!
