About the Author 
& to go to her Author's Page.

 She is a griot, abolitionist, the Director of the programs at SC Wild's Hertiage Center and owner of the historic UGRR Secret Quilt Code & Plantation Quilts collections.

Her late mother and family was from Edgefield, and surrounding areas in South Carolina. She is documenting and digitizing her family's "Oral History", while teaching others like me, to do the same.

There are a lot of things going on all of the time. Soap, jewerly, candy, cooking making, even rock hounding. There are guided  hunting & fishing trips offered seasonally.  We make crafts projects and paint new things in arts classes weekly.

I do lots of fun activities. I did my school science project for the Science Fair there. I made butter in a mason jar and now Ms. Kemp knows the temperature at which cream turns in to butter. It is the best butter I have ever tasted!

We love eating what we make too. Shelby, my classmate & I have made chocolate candy and hard candy, earrings for my mother, painted gourds and I have cut the sugar cane to root the plants this spring. We learned to cut bamboo to make wind chimes.

She offers workshops on grant writing, shools out camps, computer skills, job readiness, geology, quilting, wild life studies, archery guided turkey/deer hunting trips and more.

I enjoyed writing this book with my parents and Ms. Teresa R. Kemp, the director. I had a display table about Ethiopia, (one of my cultures) at the 2017 International Heritage Festival. This is only one of the many activities I have worked on at SC Wild's Heritage Center.

This is my first book, but won't be my last.

I have never been to Ethiopia.

Join me in reading my first book,

"Jordyn's Ethiopian Journey"

Here are some of the things I

discovered about Ethiopia.

There are churches carved over hundreds of years out of rock.
