Celebrate the holidays with the Gullah/Geechees

The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition is the premiere organization for the advocacy of the continuation of Gullah/Geechee culture, history, heritage and traditions. This national organization with international supporters will host a free “Gullah/Geechee Nation Holiday Celebration” from 3 to 7 p.m. at MJs Soul Food on historic St. Helena Island on Saturday, December 19. Everyone is invited to bring the family and join in purchasing Gullah/Geechee crafts, items, and cuisine while dancing to holiday and R & B music provided by All Mobile Productions™ (AMP™).

St. Helena Island’s own Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, is the founder of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition and will be hosting the “Gullah/Geechee Nation Holiday Celebration.” She will sign books, CDs, DVDs, and posters throughout the afternoon.

This celebration will be the culmination of the “Gullah/Geechee Land & Legacy World Tour’s” 2015 engagements for her and will also be the nineteen anniversary of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition. So, Queen Quet says, “Disya gwine be a time fa tru! Praise GAWD fa blessin we fa cum togedda een de Gullah/Geechee Nation fa de Holy Days Celebration ya!” She looks forward to meeting and greeting native Gullah/Geechees and visitors during the celebration.

Gullah/Geechee crafts artisans will join Queen Quet at “MJs Soul Food” on Highway 21/Sea Island Parkway on St. Helena Island. “MJs” is a Gullah/Geechee owned and operated restaurant that specializes in traditional and soul foods. So, cum fa nyam wid we and celebrate wid de Gullah/Geechee!
