Lorenzo Turner
1890-1972

Lorenzo Dow Turner was a linguist/Africanist who devoted the major portion of his life to the research and documentation of the survivals and retentions of West African languages and culture in the descendants of African ex-slaves of the Western Hemisphere.

After studying Gullah culture, he went to Cuba and Nigeria around 1951.
