Gullah/Geechee Nation’s Black Music Month on Historic St. Helena Island Launches with the Sea Island Sounds Celebration
Throughout the celebration DJ Kwame Sha of All Mobile Productions™ (AMP™) will also spin a variety of music by Gullah/Geechee artists that people may not be aware were natives of the area. There will be an exhibition curated from De Gullah/Geechee Alkbulan Archive about these artists that will also be on display at the landmark St. Helena Branch Library throughout the month. Many may want to view it when the new “Gullah/Geechee TV & Movie Club” showings take place there on Saturday, June 24th. The Noon film will be “Standing in the Shadows of Motown” which highlights Gullah/Geechee Hall of Famer, James Jamison of the “Funk Brothers” and the 2:30 pm film will be “Reconstruction: The Second Civil War” which Queen Quet appeared in and sang for.
