The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition's Gullah/Geechee Living History Series continues at the St. Helena Branch Library with the new Gullah/Geechee TV and Movie Club.

All are welcome to attend the club's screenings, which will focus on films related to the Gullah/Geechee nation; each showing will include an open dialogue led by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah Geechee Nation, and links to additional educational resources.

The first screening will show part one of the documentary Reconstruction: The Second Civil War on Sat., May 20 at noon; Queen Quet appeared in and consulted for this PBS documentary. The launch of the club will also include a screening of the new documentary Black Beach/White Beach, a film focusing on how the "Black Biker Week" is treated differently from "Biker Week" in Myrtle Beach.

Queen Quet says about the club's series, "Ef hunnuh waan kno bout who webe, den hunnuh need fa be een disya club of movies and TV featurin de Gullah/Geechee!"
