Gullah Geechee People, Maroons & Seminoles to Reunite in Florida August 19 -22

On Saturday, August 21, South Floridians will have the opportunity to experience an authentic Black culture that can be traced directly back to the enslavement of Africans from the West Coast of Africa. Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah Geechee Nation, and a contingent of Elders from the Gullah Geechee Wisdom Circle; fishermen; cast net and basketmakers; musicians; historians and artists will convene for a great reunion with Africans from the diaspora and our Seminole and Miccosukee brethren.

The African American Research Library and Cultural Centered, located in the Rev. Samuel Delevoe Jr. Park, along the banks of the North Fork of the New River, is the venue for the celebration of this historic event. Read more . . .

    My interest in the Gullah Geechee people after reading an article in National Geograhic from an interview with Cornelia Bailey. I believe my husband’s family has its roots with these people.
    I cannot join the reunion but I wish you all of the best and sincerely hope the reunion is a success.
