Gullah/Geechee TV & Movie Club Launches with “Reconstruction: The Second Civil War”

The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition will continue its “Gullah/Geechee Living History” series with a series of movies at the St. Helena Branch Library on historic St. Helena Island, SC in the Gullah/Geechee Nation.  The entire community is invited to come out to be a part of the new “Gullah/Geechee TV & Movie Club.”  Each showing will involve dialogues and links to additional educational resources for each film or TV broadcast.

The “Gullah/Geechee TV & Movie Club” will begin on Saturday, May 20th with Part 1 of the documentary, “Reconstruction: The Second Civil War” which will be introduced by Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) who appeared in and consulted for the documentary which aired on PBS when it was first released.

Given that Beaufort County is now part of the new multi-site “Reconstruction Era National Monument,” this film showing will be a wonderful continuation of the celebration of this historic designation!
