dc.description.abstractPublic meetings have become a means of expanding the reach of debate and deliberation to include the perspectives of a variety of community members. This project examines to what extent a series of meeting held by the National Park Service in 2000 are able to include the perspectives of a marginalized group, the Gullah of Georgia and South Carolina. The focus on this study is on the ways that the Gullah are both able to use the meetings to have their voices heard and how meeting administrators seek to contain public calls for empowerment.
