ChasDoc Film Society's documentary Bin Yah explores the potential loss of important African-American communities in Mt. Pleasant, SC due to growth and development. Through the testimonies of the residents themselves, the film explores the culture, the history and the importance of land and the concept of home, giving voice to those who seldom have had a chance to be heard.

Her generosity of spirit and heartfelt contributions to BIN YAH, for which the filmmakers are extremely grateful, will always be remembered. Through her words and memories the history and culture of Gullah communities in Mt. Pleasant and throughout the Lowcountry will live on.
