"Gullah Connections: Crossing Over, Passing, the Links between the worlds" - written by Ramona La Roche.

The imagery and the rites of passage often associated with that of crossing over, passing (on), or stepping have long been associated with transcendence from one world to another. There is always an ascension of sorts, connected with such acts. The author explores the African Diaspora's spiritual link between the people from the shores of the Western motherland, to the Gullahs (Geechees) of the coastal Southeastern low country.
