“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.
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.
