Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Awareness Month 2018
The Gullah/Geechee Nation began their celebration of “Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Awareness Month” by celebrating the receipt of the Rev. Dr. BJ Whipper Sr. Community Service Award by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and Founder of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition. The award was presented at a banquet in Charleston, SC on the same Saturday of the Moja Celebration Heritage Day which was the final Saturday in September. The South Carolina Coalition for Voter Participation honored Queen Quet for unselfish community service and her contributions spiritually, economically, and politically.
