Facilitated by: Dr. Shamyka Sutton, Ph.D
Join us Thursday, February 2nd, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM for the first Lunch and Learn in our Black History Month Series.
Dr. Shamyka Sutton will share insights about Black culinary roots and how the slave trade shaped today’s soul food. Attendees will learn the difference between soul food and southern food and patterns of misattribution in our food culture that dismisses our ancestors' role in culinary arts. Finally, attendees will be encouraged to try new recipes, which will be provided.
