This Migrations festival partner event has been cancelled. For any queries, please contact occ@oxfordculturalcollective.com.

Dr. Jessica B. Harris—American culinary historian and author of numerous cookbooks documenting the foods of the African Diaspora—relays the fascinating history of African American cuisine, taking attendees on a harrowing journey from Africa across the Atlantic to America. From collard greens and ham hocks to fried chicken and vegan soul, Harris celebrates the delicious and restorative foods of African American people, detailing how they came to be a defining part of African American culture and identity. Although the story of African cuisine in America begins with slavery, Harris ultimately chronicles a history of triumph and survival. The evening includes a drinks reception and dinner that celebrate African American culture.
