Summary, etc.:
Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine ( is the head-of-state for the Gullah/Geechee Nation. Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation stems from two Gullah/Geechee families of Dataw, Polowana, and St. Helena Island, South Carolina where she was homegrown in her native culture. She is the first selected and elected Queen Mother, official spokesperson, and liaison for the Gullah/Geechee Nation. She was the first Gullah/Geechee to speak on behalf of her people at the United Nations in Genevé, Switzerland. This is the sixth volume of the thirty volume series called "Gullah/Geechee: Africa's Seed in the Winds of the Diaspora." This volume tells the stories of the trials and triumphs that founders of Gullah/Geechee Black townships and beaches have faced over the decades. Many people are unaware of the existence of these areas that served as safe havens for people of African descent that sought places in which they could safely enjoy each other and celebrate while economically empowering the Black community. Long time we bin da fight a fa place fa we.
