Celebrating 20 Years of de @GullahGeechee Nation and e Queen

As Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week 2020 rapidly approaches, town after town and county after county from Jacksonville, NC to Jacksonville, FL are issuing proclamations for the #GullahGeechee2020 celebration.  The media is also connecting with Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) to not only promote the celebration, but to talk with her about her two decades long reign as Queen.  On Monday, July 13, WTOC-TV sent out a crew to connect with Queen Quet and they aired a wonderful interview:

WTOC-TV Interviews Queen Quet

This was Queen Quet‘s second interview of the day.  She started out in the morning chatting with WHHI’s Beaufort News.  That piece aired on cable television.

While both of these pieces played on TV, many environmental fans were listening in to Queen Quet on Eco-interviews: https://eco-interviews.com/eco-stories/activism/queen-quet-gullah-geechee-nation/?fbclid=IwAR0XMkUZWoYsKokxdTPOxxDZLd_7AnV0YxwYUL88G6yrZvpeKSAuoIkbQtg
