Daughters of the Dust is the story of a African American family preparing to move north at the start of the 20th Century. The film brings to life the changing values, conflicts and struggles that confront them as they leave their homeland for the promise of a new and better future. Daughters of the Dust explores the unique culture of the Gullah people, descendants of slaves who lived in relative isolation on the sea islands of the Georgia coast.
