Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine is a published author, computer scientist, lecturer, mathematician, historian, columnist, preservationist, and "The Art-ivist." In August 2008, Queen Quet was one of the first of seven inductees to the Gullah/Geechee Nation Hall of Fame. She received the "Anointed Spirit Award" for her leadership and for being a visionary. 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. Goodwine was also selected, elected, and enstooled by her people to be the first Queen Mother of and official spokesperson for the Gullah/Geechee Nation. As a result, she is respectfully referred to as "Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation".
