Join us for an author talk at the SC State Library featuring Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine: an author, computer scientist, lecturer, historian, columnist, preservationist, environmental justice advocate, consultant, and “The Art-ivist.” Among other things, she founded of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition, whose goal is to advocate for the continuation of Gullah/Geechee culture.

Queen Quet has not only provided “histo-musical presentations” throughout the world but was also the first Gullah/Geechee person to speak on behalf of her people before the United Nations in Genevé, Switzerland. She is also one of the first of seven inductees in the Gullah/Geechee Nation Hall of Fame and received the “Anointed Spirit Award” for her leadership and vision. 

For this program, she will be sharing her two most recently-published books, as well as discussing their cultural importance. Books will be available for purchase and signing. If you cannot join us in person, you will be able to view a livestream of this event at youtube.com/scstatelibrary.
