Soul Summit: A Conversation About Race, Identity, Power and Food.

The symposium begins on Emancipation Day with a welcome reception in the elegant foyer of the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center. We will spend the next day and a half eating and drinking together on the historic campus of Austin’s historically black college, Huston-Tillotson University, while discussing the complex intersection of African American foodways and traditions, and how they have been used to define culture.

Shame on You TEDx, Glynwood Institute, and your president Diane Hatz

Please take a moment to read Tanya's it will anger you, but hopefully also encourage you to support the grassroots work that is going on by true stakeholders in the communities most effected by food insecurity.
