Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) made ourstory and history once again! She has released two Gullah/Geechee novels simultaneously! This is the first time that anyone has done this.
Both novels have Gullah/Geechee youths engaging with their elders to learn their family histories on the Sea Islands while also encountering environmental dangers and land issues. Dem chillun use muddawit fa git tru disya fa tru. These two sagas bring to life the lifestyles of traditional Gullah/Geechee families and show how the youth that engage in knowing who they are will be champions in holding onto this cultural legacy.
"Gwine Home" takes the readers into a Gullah/Geechee intergenerational saga centered on their spirituality and healing practices. The Gullah/Geechee history of the family is passed down from the elders to the youths as each day on the Sea Islands unfolds when the youth realize that there are changes happening to the environment and that there are threats to the land that the family has held for generations.
