Esau Jenkins and the Progressive Club’s Work Honored with a Historical Marker

Queen Quet of the Gullah/Geechee Nation ( attended the event as well and has documented the unveiling on the Gullah/Geechee blog which can be found here). The Gullah/Geechee Nation is a “nation within a nation” representing the rights of Gullah people and preserving and promoting the unique Gullah culture here in the Lowcountry.  The Nation corresponds with the federally declared Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor and extends more or less from Jacksonville, North Carolina to Jacksonville, Florida. Queen Quet’s report and the video documenting the unveiling of the marker can be found above.

    I have recently driven by the progressive club on the island. Who is responsible for the upkeep of the property?

    • Peace!

      The Progressive Club members are. They are in a building fund process and drive at the moment.
