As my appreciation for mahogany grew, I never thought that it would cause me to truly find its meaning amongst the trees in the Gullah/Geechee Nation as I sat in a circle of women that would strengthen one another as the ancestors encircled us in GODly energy that protected us. Mahogany was what brought us together to honor the healing energy that enters the souls of those that are truly open to it as they traverse Sea Island soil with those of us whose roots are inextricably tied to this land. That healing energy brought about love, laughter, clarity and “Girlfriendship.”
The “Gullah/Geechee TV & Movie Club” will begin on Thursday, March 23rd at 6 pm with Part 1 of the documentary, “Reconstruction: The Second Civil War.” Part 2 will be shown on April 27th. Both parts will be introduced by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) who appeared in and consulted for the documentary which aired on PBS when it was first released.
