Gullah/Geechees Honor Emanuel 9

“Black History Month 2017” opened with events honoring the Emanuel 9 in Charleston, SC in the Gullah/Geechee Nation.  Gullah/Geechee native artists, Leroy Campbell unveiled his new piece, “Bible Study” at the Charleston Music Hall.  The City of Charleston also gave him their first key and a proclamation of “Leroy Campbell Day” for being one of their successful native sons that still continues to contribute to his community.

Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) was one of the first to get a photo with Leroy Campbell’s “Bible Study” which honors the Emanuel 9.

 

Within days of this celebration, the production “Gullah/Geechee Knows Emanuel” opened.  This dramatic historical play produced by Carlie Towne Gullah/Geechee People Productions was written by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com). The play will tour to other locations during 2017 after their dinner theater and Party with a Purpose event which will be another fundraiser for the Gullah/Geechee Angel Network, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition, and the Destiny Café.  That show will take place on Friday, June 2nd at “Scott’s Grand.”

The Gullah/Geechee Nation intends to keep the names of those senselessly murdered at Emanuel AME known.   They seek to keep the spirit of their works alive through honoring GOD and continuing to uplift the community.
