The European Struggle to Settle North America

Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, England, France, and Spain struggled to establish permanent settlements in North America. Most of their attempts failed, but each country finally achieved success. The area that would become South Carolina played an important role in this struggle. The authors of The European Struggle to Settle North America: Colonizing Attempts by England, France and Spain, 1521-1608 will delve into settlement efforts in the Southeastern United States and in particular the Port Royal Sound region. Signed copies of The European Struggle to Settle North America: Colonizing Attempts by England, France and Spain, 1521-1608 will be offered for sale after the program.

Celebrate Gullah/Geechee Sustainability and Self-Sufficiency on St. Helena Island

March 26, 2017
Celebrate Gullah/Geechee Sustainability and Self-Sufficiency at the St. Helena Island Community Market’s 
Tunis Campbell Day
St. Helena Community Market Tunis Campbell Day
The St. Helena Island Community Market will open its second month of activities for 2017 with “Tunis Campbell Day” and a seed swap on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm at the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Park on historic St. Helena Island, SC.  The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition is proud to collaborate with the market on this celebration of Gullah/Geechee sustainability and self-sufficiency in honor of Freedman’s Bureau Commissioner Tunis Campbell who assisted with land redistribution on the Sea Islands.  Given that Beaufort County is now the location of the new multi-site US Reconstruction Era National Monument, the St. Helena Island Community Market participants seek to provide more information to the attendees regarding this aspect of history.   To that end, Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) will do a presentation regarding Tunis Campbell at “Tunis Campbell Day.”
 
Queen Quet will also celebrate the anniversary of her first visit to the United Nations to speak to the Human Rights Commission on behalf of Gullah/Geechee people at the “Tunis Campbell Day.”  That historic event took place on April 1, 1999.  Queen Quet has dedicated her life to protecting Gullah/Geechee land rights and the continuation of Gullah/Geechee culture.  Her life has many parallels to that of Tunis Campbell.  She also served as a federal commissioner and encountered many of the obstacles to land rights protection that Tunis Campbell did.   Being a native of St. Helena Island caused Queen Quet to know what Sea Island self-sufficiency is first hand and she is proud to be a part of the St. Helena Island Community Market which continues to support self-sufficiency and sustainability.
Queen Quet will do a book, CD, and DVD signing and there will be a number of other crafts and musical artists and entrepreneurs taking part in the St. Helena Island Community Market which takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month.  For those that are interested in more information about the market, please email info@StHelenaIslandCommunityMarket.com or go to www.StHelenaIslandCommunityMarket.com or email GullGeeCo@aol.com.
 
Cum jayn we fa celebrate Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Self-Sufficiency!
