Meet the Author: Amy Roberts

Amy Roberts, author of Gullah Geechee Heritage in the Golden Isles. The Golden Isles are home to a long and proud African American and Gullah Geechee heritage and, thanks to preservation efforts, the Historic Harrington School still stands on St. Simons Island. From the Selden Normal and Industrial Institute to the tabby cabins of Hamilton Plantation, authors Amy Roberts and Patrick Holladay explore the rich history of the region’s islands and their people. Amy Roberts is the executive director of the St. Simons African American Heritage Coalition and an island tour guide for more than twenty years. She is the recipient of a number of awards, including the Georgia Governor's Award for the Arts and Humanities, the NAACCP Image Award and the Golden Isles Hospitality Shared Vision Award.
