If Austin Peay Could Talk: Jessica’s Story

 

Of culture and compromise             

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – I am a descendent of the Gullah Geechee people of South Carolina. We are people, culture, and language, maintaining our African heritage with pride and demonstrating a resolve to hold our connection to that history.

Our language is a Creole dialect and unique, but growing up, I acquired an understanding of how differences in language can be rooted in prejudice.

APSU faculty edits Diary that provides glimpse of Clarksville during Civil War

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In the mid-1980s, an old store ledger was found inside a local smokehouse. At first glance, it seemed like little more than trash, but then someone opened the yellowed, water-stained pages and read surreal accounts of Clarksville during the Civil War.

“Clarksville is almost depopulated,” the ledger recorded. “All the escaped soldiers have been ordered to the main army via Clarksville before the Yankees get in. I ripped the stripes off a young man’s coat over at Uncle W’m’s this evening that he might not be detected on his journey. Once I enjoyed sewing them, but now I take them off as willingly.”
