"Any discussion about American music that doesn’t include Muscle Shoals, Alabama isn’t really a discussion at all.” That’s a direct quote from the website of FAME STUDIOS. We had a chance to visit Muscle Shoals and the 2 studios that stayed undercover for most of the 60’s and 70’s while legends came to record with a producer and a rhythm section that should be household names. Join us at the table as we discuss the music of Muscle Shoals.If you’re a big Lynyrd Skynyrd fan you may have caught the name Muscle Shoals in some lyrics, but you may have NEVER EVER heard of this place and that’s ok. But if you love music, you’re gonna wanna pack your backs and make the trek. WE promise. It’s worth it!Mentioned in this episode: Dockery Farms Episode (Blues) - https://steelmagnoliaspodcast.com/episode/dockery-farmsMuscle Shoals Documentary - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2492916/FAME STUDIO - https://famestudios.com/MUSCLE SHOALS SOUND - https://muscleshoalssoundstudio.org/The Swampers interview (2008) with Musicians Hall of Fame —  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QueguLfL--QHuge thanks to Linda Hall (wife to the late Rick Hall) for giving us time and to both FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound for the tours! Steel Magnolias Podcast is an independent show funded solely on support from listeners like you and a few advertisers from time to time.Are you enjoying the show?

Gullah Geechee

Gullah Geechee

2024-05-0725:44

Located on the sea islands of South Carolina and Georgia are communities of people who are descendants of enslaved Africans. They have a unique culture that is directly linked to West Africa. In South Carolina, this group of African-Americans and the language they speak are referred to as Gullah, and in Georgia they are called Geechee. Many historians believe the word Gullah comes from Angola a West African country from which many of the slaves came. Another idea is that Gullah is from the Gola, a tribe from the border of Liberia and Sierra Leone West Africa, although the exact origin of the word is not known most historians agree that the Gulla people and their language have African roots us at the table as we discussed this piece of southern cultureMentioned in this episode:Our interview with Lynette White of the Plantation Singers can be found as part of our Charleston episode on “Have Love, Will Travel” https://www.accessmore.com/pd/Have-Love-Will-Travel-Try Benne Crackers!We recommend Marsh Hen Mill for Carolina Gold Rice (or Grits!)

According to the Library of Congress, in 1862 President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, opened the door for African-Americans to enlist in the Union Army. Although many had wanted to join the war effort earlier, they were prohibited from enlisting by a federal law dating back to 1792. President Lincoln had also feared that if he authorized their recruitment, border states would secede from the Union. By the end of the U.S. Civil war, almost 200,000 African-American soldiers had joined the fight. They were known as the U.S. Colored Troops.We had the privilege of sitting down with Mrs. Vivian Sims, who was an educator for many decades before finding out that there were soldiers of her race, who also bravely fought in that war.She has lived in Pulaski, Tennessee for 50 years, and that town has a difficult part of its history having been the place where the Ku Klux Klan began. Join us at the table as we hear a redemptive story of what is now being remembered about Pulaski.Read here about the U.S. Colored Troops statue that Vivian Sims had created and installed in June 2023 in Pulaski, Tennessee:In the birthplace of the KKK, she spent $82,000 to erect statue of Black Civil War soldierSteel Magnolias Podcast is an independent show funded solely on support from listeners like you and a few advertisers from time to time.Are you enjoying the show?

I recently found Steel Magnolias and LOVE it! I was Southern born, but midwest raised with all my family's Southern ways. I have always been proud of my deep Southern heritage and traditions. This podcast is like sitting down with friends talking everything from food, family, faith and everything in between! #steelmagnoliaspodcast #southernlife #proudsouthernroots
