Come and join the anniversary celebration of the Gullah/Geechee Sea
Island Coalition which is the premiere organization for the advocacy
of Gullah/Geechee rights and cultural continuation. The Gullah/Geechee
Sea Island Coalition’s homebase is St. Helena Island, SC and it was
founded by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation who is a
native of St. Helena and has family roots stemming also to Polowana
and Dataw.   Queen Quet will lead an interactive evening in music and
dance that celebrates the harmonies that Gullah/Geechees have brought
to and sustained in North America as a part of the Smithsonian
exhibition, “New Harmonies.”

Queen Quet will be a part of the opening of the “New Harmonies”
exhibit tomorrow at 2 pm.  All events are FREE!
