Should I capitalize culture in the following sentence?

I am proud to share Somali culture with the community.

I know that proper nouns should be capitalized, but culture seems to be a generic noun with a proper modifier. Hence, I am unsure of what to do.

As you said, "culture [is] a generic noun with a proper modifier". In such cases, as long as the generic noun is not part of the proper name (i.e. part of the name Somali), you should not capitalize it.
