Gullah/Geechee Nation Flooding and Emergency Management

Although Hurricane Florence has long left the Gullah/Geechee Nation, the remnants of the massive down pours of rain and storm water still remain.  Rivers are still rising through the Carolinas.  Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and Founder of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition (www.GullahGeechee.net) and the Wisdom Circle Council of Elders and Representatives of the Gullah/Geechee Nation have been coordinating emergency management and recovery efforts  in collaboration with the Black Emergency Management Association (BEMA).
