The ASALH-Athens Branch and UGA Libraries are very pleased to again co-sponsor the annual Founder’s Day event, in honor of ASALH’s creator, the historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson. To culminate an active year of programming focused on the theme of The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity, we have planned a panel celebrating the cultural and historic roles of African American foods. ASALH member Jean Young will moderate the following panel including Black chefs, gardeners, and restaurateurs from Athens, as well as two university professors who study food traditions and nutrition issues in Black communities. This panel also anticipates the forthcoming 2022 ASALH theme, Black Health and Wellness.
Byron Hurt’s film Soul Food Junkies is streaming free online at Kaltura courtesy of UGA Libraries and is now available for you to view. Go to: https://kaltura.uga.edu/media/t/1_iee0j0w0. We strongly encourage you to screen the film prior to the panel event, since our excellent moderator Jean Young has composed some questions that reflect directly about the film.
