“Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week” has consistently been a time to truly support #GullahGeechee artistry! Pre-Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week events included a walk through of “Black Refractions” at the Gibbes Museum in Charleston led by Jonathan Green and an art gala featuring Quadre Stuckey of Quad Designs in Georgetown, SC. Those that wanted to learn the drum even had the opportunity to participate in a North Charleston drumming circle with Docta Yew and Sista Khetnu Nefer.
The drums didn’t stop sounding as RBM Drummers and Dancers led the drum call at “Gullah/Geechee Famlee Day at Mosquito Beach” amidst the works of sweetgrass traditions keeper, Anastatia Ketchen.
Queen Quet will do a book and CD signing as part of the evening. If you cannot attend, Queen Quet & De Gullah Cunneckshun’s CDs can be obtained via iTunes, CD Baby, and from www.GullahGeechee.biz along with other Gullah/Geechee items including “Holmes Heritage Handmade Quilts.”
