*fighting tax hikes

I! on Georgia coast "



By Russ Bynum egc i The Associated Press .

DARIEN, Ga. (AP) Residents of one of the few remaining GullahGeechee communities on the Southeast coast opened new appeals Monday against soaring property values that brought them big tax hikes,
rw fearful they could be forced off lands their families have owned since
their ancestors were freed from slavery.
The African-American residents of the tiny Hog Hammock community on Georgia's Sapelo Island got sticker shock last year when steep increases in their property values saddled them with whopping tax bills. Skyrocketing appraisals and tax bills come amid pressure from affluent mainland buyers driving up land values while seeking property along or near the Atlantic coast. But critics say the increasing tax burden violates .protections enacted to help preserve the island's indigenous inhabitants.

KEY MOMENTS


IN BLACK HISTORY

Miami Tnes siaff report

NAT TURNER
Nat Turner (Oct. 2, 1880 Nov. 11, 11831) was a Black slave who led a
slave rebellion in Virginia on Aug. 21, 1831 that resulted in 55 white deaths. P
Whites responded with at least 100 Black deaths. Turner gathered supporters in Southampton County, V'rginia but it wasn't enough. He was convicted, sentenced to death and hanged. In the aftermath, the state executed 56 blacks accused of being part of Turners slave rebellion. Two hundred Blacks were also killed after being beaten by white militias and mobs reacting with violence. Across Virginia and other southern states, state legislators passed Corei a Bailey

privilege of living on Sapelo Island. We don't want to be crybabies, but, it seems like we're being treated unfairly."
Sapelo Island is separated from the mainland and reachable only by boat. Since 1976, the state of Georgia has owned most of its 30 square miles, largely unspoiled wilderness, while the tiny Hog Hammock community sits on less than a square mile of modest homes amid dirt roads. The Gullah, referred to as Geechee in Georgia, are scattered in island communities over 425 miles of Atlantic coast where they've endured after their slave ancestors who worked island plantations were freed by the Civil War.

Scholars say these people long separated from the mainland retained Much of their African heritage from unique dialect to skills and crafts such as cast-net fishing and weaving baskets. But isolation also caused Gullah communities to shrink. .
Since 2010, a handful of Hog Hammock landowners have sold their .
properties for as much as $165,500 a half-acre to mainland buyers wanting to build houses near the water. County appraisers insist they have valued homes according to market demands and land sale prices in the community.
~"The values that we placed on their properties, we feel they still hold," .
