Gullahs of Achievement A Celebration of Black History

The landmark St. Helena Branch Library will host its annual free Black History Month celebration on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 6 pm.  Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and Founder of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition will provide the keynote address for the program themed “Gullahs of Achievement.”  Queen Quet will focus on the legacy of Gullah/Geechee native Robert S. Abbott who founded “The Defender” newspaper and how his publication altered the history of tens of thousands of people of African descent during the era that is now referred to as “The Great Migration.”
 
Gullahs of Achievement
 
Queen Quet was chosen to provide the keynote address not only due to her on-going support of the “Gullah/Geechee Living History Series” that goes on annually at the St. Helena Branch Library, but also due to the fact that she is one of two St. Helena Island natives to ever be presented with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History‘s “Living Legacy Award.”   ASALH is the organization that was founded by the father of Black History Month, Dr. Carter G. Woodson.  So, receiving an honor as a living legacy is a true accolade and a testimony to Queen Quet’s commitment to Black history and cultural heritage.  She continues to live up to this honor by making sure to share the history that she loves at numerous venues annually for Black History Month.  So, she invites and encourages you to bring out the family to celebrate Gullahs of Achievement.

    Queen could someone do a Facebook Live session during your speech so those of us who live in far away states can hear what you say. We would appreciated it.

    • Peace Bert!

      I greatly appreciate you wanting to support from afar. However, I do not allow people to keep telephones on during presentations for the most part. Gullah/Geechee TV http://www.GullahGeechee.tv is the station for the broadcast of my presentations. Please tune in there and also subscribe.

      Tenki Tenki!

      Peace,
      Queen Quet
