#GullahGeechee2020: Celebratin Who Webe!
This is the official international festival of the Gullah/Geechee Nation.
The Destiny Community Café in North Charleston, SC is a “Pay-What-You-Can” café that has evolved from not only feeding the body, but to also feeding the mind. In October, they did the ribbon cutting for the “Queen Quet Gullah/Geechee Legacy Library.” This effort is being supported by Barnes and Noble. The West Ashley store in Charleston and the North Charleston store are locations where donations of Gullah/Geechee and Black history books for all ages can be donated for the library via the “Gullah Geechee” Saturday Series for Destiny Community Café Book Drive.

“Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Awareness Month” was filled with inspirational and educational events and activities. The citizens of the Gullah/Geechee Nation never restrict the celebration of who they are to one month. Instead, they celebrate the continuation of their cultural heritage all year long. To that end, the month of November is filled with celebrations of this rich cultural legacy.
A tear flowed down my eyes on the historic peninsula called “Charleston” or “Chucktown” that was once called “Charles Town.”
These tears were emitting from my soul for my ancestors as I explained to the mayor of this international city how things must go down.
No one in the room spoke, they all simply looked on and listened to what the ancestors had to say through me
As I told them how my feet burned every time I walked the streets of this city.
Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) returned to the University of Florida as one of the stops on the “Healin’ de Land World Tour.” She was afforded the honor to be a “Dean’s Scholar” and she provided the keynote address, “Gullah/Geechee: Living Resilience and Cultural Sustainability.” Tune een fa yeddi disya frum Gullah/Geechee TV (GGTV).
Gullah/Geechee people have been displaced by resort destructionment time and time again and they are now having to deal with increased erosion and climate change impacts due to these types of places. Bay Point is critical to the ecological balance of the Sea Islands including St. Helena Island. Tune in to hear how the community stood up in OPPOSITION to this proposal. An online petition has garnered support from around the world in OPPOSITION as well: http://chng.it/gcmmgqFq
