Does Being Nice Make Us Southern?

Apr 6, 2017

Georgia leads Southern states in hospitality, according to a recent survey from Twiddy.com. What does Southern Hospitality really mean? We talked with College of Charleston professor Gibbs Knotts, co-author of the new book, “The Resilience of Southern Identity: Why the South Still Matters in the Minds of its People.”  We also heard from April McLean, who works at the Athens-based etiquette school, Perfectly Polished. Finally, we get the views of Alfreda Lockett, the executive chef at Meemaw’s restaurant in Macon.
