Welcome to Soul of the South, SGA’s repository for tips and tidbits that focus on the American South’s cultural, literary, music, language, food and folk traditions. In addition, from time to time, we’ll feature “Southern Superlatives” – national and regional news that shows how SGA states and the region stack up in areas such as education, quality of life, “best ofs” and more.
