Directed by Julie Dash | 1991

With Cora Lee Day, Barbara O, Alva Rogers

Julie Dash’s gorgeous evocation of early-20th century Gullah life chronicles three generations of women in the Peazant family—descendants of slaves living on the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina—as several prepare to leave home to migrate north. Steeped in the language, culture, and customs of the Gullah people, Daughters of the Dust is a dreamy, at times mystic, celebration of folk traditions and black womanhood.
