Virginia M. Geraty has spent over fifty years of her life in South Carolina. She attended the College of Charleston, where she earned her doctorate of humane letters. She worked as a librarian in the Charleston County School District before she found her passion with the Gullah language. This interest in the Gullah dialect soon allowed Geraty to achieve the difficult task of not only being able to speak it, but also write it. She still lives in South Carolina where she is known as a Gullah instructor and dialect coach, author, playwright, and producer/director. In South Carolina, Virginia Geraty has made a name for herself in such organizations as the SC Historical Society, AASLH, SC Retired Educators, Charleston Trident Chamber of Commerce, National League of American Penwomen, Poetry Society of South Carolina, and MLA. She has also been nominated for the Poet Laureate of South Carolina award. Virginia M. Geraty has written several works with the Gullah dialect in mind, including Porgy, A Gullah Version, Bittle ení Tíing, Maum Chrishí Chaaístun, Charleston's Highlights, Sidelights and Shadows, and Gullah Night Before Christmas.
