UMOJA-Unity in the Gullah/Geechee Community
Join Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) for Kwanzaa 2013 as UMOJA is not only defined but celebrated and reflected upon on Gullah/Geechee Riddim Radio.
Throughout the year, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition (www.gullahgeechee.net), the Gullah/Geechee Angel Network (www.gullahgeecheeangelnetwork.com), and the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Committee of Northeast Florida have worked together in unity and to build unity within the Gullah/Geechee community. These groups that were founded by and continue to be led by native Gullah/Geechee traditions keepers invite others to be a part of the on-going efforts to keep Gullah/Geechee culture alive and Gullah/Geechee people on their land.
Together these three organizations of the Gullah/Geechee Nation were able to celebrate
Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week:
