Southern Culture

It is surprising how much of what passes for "American" culture is actually Southern culture.  In this section, we hope to introduce, or rather re-introduce, Southerners to the roots of their culture.  As much as any other people, Southerners have a very well developed culture consisting of food, music, art, literature, dance and even manners and mores that differ from the rest of America.  You may be surprised to discover just how much of what is truly Southern culture has been adopted by the rest of America and been taken for granted as "American" culture.  You are invited to explore the material here, as well as the many links provided.  If you know of anything else that you might think should be included here, we encourage you to and let us know what it is.  We are always willing to consider the input of others.
