Juneteenth 2020 with Michael W Twitty
Juneteenth - How does Michael approach this topic?
On June 19th, 1865, the last enslaved people held in bondage in Texas were emancipated. From that day on a yearly celebration of emancipation evolved to remind us that food goes hand in hand with celebration and liberation. Join Michael W. Twitty for a stirring conversation and dialogue on the power of African American foodways to transmit wisdom and communicate techniques for survival and emotional well being. Challenged by COVID-19 and the ongoing search for racial equity, Juneteenth comes just in time to give us nourishment and hope. We will go over the Juneteenth tradition and explore the ways food has been used and can be used to help us grow beyond our present challenges.
