ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some students at Albany State wrapped up a class on an African language by experiencing the culture of Africa.     

The ASU students learned how to speak Yoruba, a language spoken along the western gulf of Africa.      

They enjoyed food from the region as well.    "Today we are getting together to fellowship," said Professor Abrabram Adeleke.

"I think it's very different.  It's not something that's normally in the U. S. and I'm glad they brought this language to the United States and different HBCUs," said student Candace Cobb.

The class has been taught at Albany State for 11 years.
