Online – Feeding Our Souls: The Essence of Black Joy
February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST$10
It has been over a year since the murder of Mr. George Floyd. In response to this horrific incident, Minnesota Humanities created what went on to become the award-winning series, “How Can We Breathe” where community members came together after being impacted by the devastation that ripped throughout the streets, businesses, and homes. “Feeding Our Souls: The Essence of Black Joy” will focus on the uplifting beat that spreads across generations despite the struggles of systemic racism. What is the root of self-determination and faith that Black people proclaim? Through the art and culture of food, music, publishing, family legacies, and more, participants will examine the actualization of “hope.”
Featuring chefs LaChelle Cunningham and Mateo Mackbee; Ramsey County Commissioner W. Toni Carter and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, III; Anthony R. Scott and Dr. Chaunda L. Scott, two of the editors of the book “Minnesota Blacks in the 21st Century”; and the music of Ginger Commodore.
