SouthTalks: After Sherman

Lectures: Filmmaker Jon-Sesrie Goff explores his Gullah/Geechee roots in coastal South Carolina.


Returning to the coastal South Carolina land that his family purchased after Emancipation, filmmaker Jon-Sesrie Goff desired to explore his Gullah/Geechee roots, a journey that transformed into a poetic investigation of Black inheritance, trauma, and generational wisdom amid the violent tensions that define America’s collective history.

Jon-Sesrie Goff is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, and arts administrator. His work, including his documentary film After Sherman, includes extensive research, visual documentation, and oral history interviews in the coastal American South on the legacy of Black landownership and Gullah/Geechee heritage preservation.

SouthTalks is a series of events (including lectures, performances, film screenings, and panel discussions) that explores the interdisciplinary nature of Southern Studies. This series is free and open to the public. Visit for more information about all Center events.
