There is a special bond in a Black Southern Belle friendship. It is more than just friendship, it is a sisterhood. Today we are exploring the beauty of that special relationship through art. We have curated 16A�Images of Black Sisterhood Through Gullah Art. We invite you to explore the beauty of Black Sisterhood through the lens of Gullah Art.
Gullah culture is native to islands from Jacksonville, NC to Jacksonville, Florida, with a strong prominence in the Sea Islands of South Carolin and Georgia. With prominent artists such as Jonathan Green, John Jones, Cassandra Gillens and more, we are showcasing the beauty of this artistic genre while also heralding black sisterhood.
These images are an inspiration for anyone who loves southern decor, bold art or sisterhood. Share some of your favorite images of sisterhood with the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle and be sure to tag us on Instagram.
