Welcome back to another episode of Speaking Tongues, the podcast in conversation with multilinguals!
I am honored to have as a guest today Sunn M’Cheaux, who is Harvard University’s first and only Gullah language instructor, where he teaches a curriculum based on extensive research and his own personal Gullah/Geechee knowledge and experience. Sunn is a Gullah Geechee native originally from South Carolina. He is not only a Gullah instructor but also an activist and advocate whose work has been featured on HBO Vice, the BBC and Al Jazeera among others.
Sunn has cultivated an online presence via social media with frequent viral content ranging from pop culture commentary, allegorical anecdotes, and entertainment, to serious discussions, advocacy, and philanthropy. He uses this content to promote intellect, ethics, enlightenment, and education—
and considers media presence to be an integral component in his effort to draw attention to the oft-ignored social groups, particularly the Gullah/Geechee community.
You can find video clips of this episode on our YouTube Channel. Big thank you to Sunn for this conversation and for sharing your language and your culture with us.
