On Thursday, March 31 at 5:30 p.m., the UTC History Department and Africana Studies Program welcome special guests Adrian Miller, James Beard Award winner, and Kenyatta Ashford, Chef at Chattanooga’s Neutral Ground, for A Conversation about Black Cuisine. This will be a conversation-style event moderated by Nicole Brown, a community leader and award-winning producer.

This event coincides with Dr. Mark A. Johnson’s Food and Southern History class. Johnson, a lecturer in the Department of History, has written books on barbecue and race relations. Currently, he’s working on a cultural history of bacon. In class, students will have read Miller’s Soul Food. Additionally, a group of five students have agreed to read Miller’s newest book, Black Smoke. They will have an opportunity to meet with Miller during their class time for a small-group discussion of his work.
