Living Black History-Celebrating the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Legacy on Gullah/Geechee Riddim Radio
“Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”
“If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.”
• Dr. Carter G. Woodson
Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and hostess of the official radio station of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, Gullah/Geechee Riddim Radio, continues to insure that the history of her forebears is written and told.
