- Cornelia Bailey, champion of African-rooted culture, dies at 72
By Neil Genzlinger - Thursday Oct 19, 2017
Cornelia Bailey, a vivid storyteller who fought to protect a vanishing slice of African-American culture on Sapelo Island, off the coast of Georgia, died on Sunday in Brunswick, Georgia. She was 72. Inez Grovner, president of the Sapelo Island Cultural and Revitalization Society, which Bailey helped found and where she was vice president, confirmed the death. The cause was not announced. Bailey was among a shrinking number of people to have been born and educated on the island, where descendants of slaves have lived for generations, the isolation of island life allowing them to retain elements of West African traditions, language and religion that have become known as Gullah-Geechee culture.

In “Strong Island,” first-time documentarian Yance Ford invites the viewer into his mother’s kitchen to revisit the brief life and sudden death of his older brother, William, at age 24. The surviving Fords — mother Barbara, sister Lauren, and the filmmaker himself — tell William’s story through dozens of family photos, fondly revealed and framed for the camera by weathered hands. There’s William, the first-born child, born to African-American strivers who hoped to find a better life in the middle-class suburbs of Long Island than the ones they had in Charleston, South Carolina. There’s William again, this time in Lauren’s memory, telling his shy teenage little sister that she’s beautiful and she should never forget it.
