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 will learn how greatly Gullah Geechee culture has impacted the American cultural landscape.”
