Celebrating Barbados & De Gullah/Geechee Nation

Many 2020 celebrations were disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic. Amongst these were numerous return home to Africa celebrations and the 350th of Charleston, SC. These were scheduled to overlap with the 300th celebration in Barbados and the 20th Anniversary of the Gullah/Geechee Nation.

As we have often had to do, the children of Mother Africa adapted quickly to the new circumstances that we were faced with. So, we took our celebrations to the global audiences that could not come to visit us. As a result, thousands of additional people have been able to partake of insights about the African Diaspora that they may not have been able to do so if traveling was required. Two such online engagements that linked people directly to celebrations that are held annually in the Gullah/Geechee Nation were the Carifest Virtual Summit and the Take a Stand fa Gullah/Geechee Land! #GullahGeechee2020 Telethon.

GOD is in the Grassroots

As an organizer of grassroots activism, I have witnessed how a grassroots movement gets something going and how those that do not want to do the hard work, sit safely away from the issue, but once they think that this issue is now one of financial benefit or media attention, they position themselves to walk in for the harvest. GOD repeated to me, “I am in the grassroots.”

Queen’s Chronicle: Building While Black

I pondered how many things people do not realize. I pondered how many obstacles any Black person that wasn’t going to another country to entertain had to cross to get there-funding, racism, discrimination, prejudice, and xenophobia.

I thought of how each of these people and Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. left this earth knowing that he or she had done what they felt would build up our people and how it didn’t take them leaving buildings here for us to visit for us to recognize that they were for us. They each realized that it would take building the minds and spirits our people up in order for the Black race to be fully built up and sustained. Once the minds were built up, we could return to building the infrastructure of great communities and kingdoms and queendoms as did Sheba and Solomon and the others of Kemet and Kush.

Gullah/Geechee: Heirs to Heirlooms

Many Gullah/Geechee heirs lost the value of their inheritance and their heirlooms over the generations because they truly were unaware of the value that lies therein.  They didn’t realize that land was not a burden because you had to pay taxes for it.  It is actually one of the greatest assets that one can possess.  An asset greater than that our ancestors had even during their enslavement on these lands that are now the Gullah/Geechee Nation is vision.
