Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) takes listeners on a journey through the Middle Passage journey from the Motherland to the Sea Islands on this episode of Gullah/Geechee Riddim Radio entitled “Middle Passage Journey to the Sea Islandshttp://www.blogtalkradio.com/gullahgeechee/2013/09/23/middle-passage-journey-to-the-sea-islands.  This water passageway came to be due to the crime against humanity called the “TransAtlantic Slave Trade.”  Over the years, there have been a number of ceremonies done to honor the souls of those that went into the passage and those that survived it.   In the Gullah/Geechee Nation, September has now been declared “Middle Passage Month” in Fernandina Beach, FL.
