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 ( who appeared in and consulted for the documentary which aired on PBS when it was first released.
