Video: Fannie Gibbs Begins WWALS Webinars 2024-01-11.
Hahira, Georgia, December 26, 2023 —
WWALS Webinars is a new monthly series of lunchtime talks
via zoom about topics related to the Suwannee River Basin.
On Thursday, January 11, 2024, from noon to 1PM, we are starting with Fannie Marie Jackson Gibbs
of Brooks County, Georgia, long active in issues near the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers, especially
involving African-American family history. She will talk about the ongoing sewage problems in
Quitman, the annual Juneteenth celebrations she organizes at Reed Bingham State Park Lake where
WWALS brings boats, family history, and anything else she wants to discuss.

“We thank Fannie Gibbs for speaking at WWALS River Revue 2023
in September, and we welcome her back to speak longer in this first
WWALS Webinar,” said WWALS President Sara Jay Jones.
“I’m honored to have worked with Fannie for many years, and I
hope you will all zoom in to hear what she has to say,” said
Suwannee Riverkeeper John S. Quarterman.
