“Nottin bot de Rice!” (Nothing but Rice!)
Entertaining and educational, this interactive, cultural game show informs viewers about the rice culture lived and passed down by Gullah Geechee people of the southeastern coastal United States. Each guest becomes a “contestant” who will gain “points” for answering questions about aspects of rice production, Gullah Geechee people, songs, history, culture, foods, and trivia. “Participants may discover they know more about the topics than they have given themselves credit for,” Daise said. “Nonetheless, they will realize how greatly Gullah Geechee culture has impacted the American cultural landscape.”
