For Columbus resident Suzan Bradford-Kounta, West African culture always was part of her life.
It was present in her upbringing, and later when she immersed herself in it by traveling to Africa.
Now, Kounta said she and her husband, Abdou Kunta, a Senegal native, are teaching their children about the culture.
In addition to sharing her culture with her family, Bradford-Kounta since 2000 has been sharing West African culture with the community through the Thiossane Institute.
