JOIN US on Saturday, November 7th, for a live-stream virtual book launch and roundtable discussion, with the authors and editors of Black Food Matters: Racial Justice in the Wake of Food Justice. The roundtable discussion will be taking place on Channel 2, via the online AAA platform. For registration information please visit the AAA registration site. Join us in a discussion with the book’s co-editors and authors Hanna Garth and Ashanté Reese, and contributing authors Gillian R. Richards-Greaves, Judith Williams, and Billy Hall.

About the book:

Black Food Matters analyzes how Blackness is contested through food, differing ideas of what makes our sustenance “healthy,” and Black individuals’ own beliefs about what their cuisine should be. This comprehensive look at Black food culture and the various forms of violence that threaten the future of this cuisine centers Blackness in a field that has too often framed Black issues through a white-centric lens, offering new ways to think about access, privilege, equity, and justice (University of Minnesota Press).

We hope you’ll join us for these great events. See you online!
