Culture Quizzes & Trivia

Native Southerners and transplants alike (many of whom have native Southern kids) will likely learn new tidbits about the region from our Southern Fried Pride project. It is a way for all of us to connect with our Southern roots in new ways, take pride in the South, preserve its invaluable influences and pass it on… For purposes of this project, the South is defined as 12 states – Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia
