The Geechee language plays a large part in the culture, which is better left for a definition to itself. The largest, active Geechee culture is located in Charleston, SC and it's surrounding areas, and proudly celebrated through such festivals as Moja Arts and Spoleto. There is also a booth in Northwoods Mall, N. Charleston, that sells the clothing line, Geechee Gear. Such history can be discovered with a simple Google search. Although there's not enough people to make it a noticeable presence, the Geechee culture does stretch down the southern coast, touching Beaufort, SC, Savannah, GA, and other cities/towns down into Florida.
The most similar relation to a Charleston accent is that of the Caribbeans (though not nearly as strong) or New Orleans.

The letter "i" is often pronounced as "u":
fifty cents becomes "fufty cent"
The pronounciation of the letter "a" is stressed:
"Boy go ahead" sounds like, "Boy go heaaaad, boy!"
"Get out my face" sounds like, "Get out my fay-ace, now!"
