Happy Anniversary to the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition! Celebrating Environmental Victories!

The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition (www.GullahGeechee.net) was the first organization in world history to contain “Gullah/Geechee” in its name.  Since they started their work in 1996 under the leadership of the founder, Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine (www.QueenQuet.com), they have successfully managed to get “Gullah/Geechee” as one unit into the vocabulary of the world instead of the use of “Gullah” or “Geechee” separately.   This is part of one of the many seeds that Queen Quet who coined the phrase

“Hunnuh mus tek cyare de root fa heal de tree.”
has planted around the world as she continues to lead the fight for Gullah/Geechee land and human rights.
