Seminole Days and Gullah/Geechee Ways

I said a prayer of healing for all of the Gullah/Geechee Diaspora and I continued the journey into the smiles and the embraces and into a process of reconnection. I gave thanks for all the elders that were present and all the youth that were now actively taking part in Seminole Days and had helped the elders to curate the museum and to market this annual reunion. I gave thanks for being able to again make this journey and to reconnect the entire Gullah/Geechee Seminole Diaspora.

Adding Color and Culture to Climate and Conservation Conversations by Queen Quet of the Gullah/Geechee Nation

The big issues in all of these talks of climate science is getting people to realize that people of color are a major part of the global public which is being impacted by every decision that we make individually and collectively when it comes to healing the land or mistreating the land.

Queen Quet’s Journey from the Lowcountry Up the Hill to the Congressional Black Caucus

This embrace also brought me back to the embrace in Switzerland where we not only sat and provided input in this international arena, but where we also enjoyed a reception at the United States Embassy while we were there continuing the fight for equity, human rights, and justice.

They say that the “journey of 1000 miles begins with a step.” Well, sometimes it continues with a plane ride. These plane rides have allowed me to sit above many issues of inequality that seem wide spread on the ground below, but it is a blessing to land and walk up the Hill to be amongst those that are on the ground working to make positive changes and who are working to heal the land and the people by putting their energy into seeking opportunities to create places of equality.

Queen Quet’s Gullah/Geechee Journey to Justice

The marks on the backs of Gullah/Geechee being thrown to the ground and kicked in the backs and whipped across their shoulders came to mind. I could see some running to try to get away from this brutality while they yet called out to GOD for protection. I could see them running from the injustice of this moment brought upon them simply because someone else did not want them to speak up. Someone else didn’t think their lives were worth enough for them to have the freedom to praise, worship, to gather, to speak, or to live. So, they were brutalized and slaughtered in the street. Denmark Vesey and Gullah Jack were hung in the street. The collective consciousness brings this image vividly to mind just as vividly as folks tied to the whipping tree in the middle of Charleston comes to mind and I can see and feel the pain as African folks are struck in the back…
