The 7th Annual Folly Beach Hands Across the Sands on Saturday. May 21st will begin with a press conference at 11:45 a.m. and will feature comments on the subject of offshore drilling from Folly Beach Mayor Tim Goodwin, Reverend Jeremy Rutledge, Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, and other community leaders.
Queen Quet is known for bringing together circles of people of diverse backgrounds to connect with one another on a wide range of issues. So, she is gladly returning back to the Gullah/Geechee Nation for “Hands Across the Sands” at Folly Beach on May 21, 2016 at 11:45 am in order to literally bring the hands of people together on the coast. She will be one of the speakers at this event as they draw more attention to the movement to prevent seismic gun use along the Gullah/Geechee Nation’s coast.
