Chef and author Tunde Wey joins San Francisco, La Cocina and Our Wise Men in a dinner conversation with Fernay McPherson (Minnie Bell's Soul Movement) and Reem Assil (Reem's California) in one stop in his Blackess in America dinner series. This dinner would not be possible, particularly at the $10 price point, without the generous presenting sponsorship of Bi-Rite Market.
The prevalent animating American tension is Identity. It plays across gender, nationality, and most combustibly race. It is incomplete to mention Identity in America without referencing race and dishonest to discuss race without starting from blackness.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Over a dinner we gather an intimate group of people to converse around the theme BLACKNESS IN AMERICA.
Through the perspective of a guest collaborator, a black community resident, our dinner explores racial justice from the experience of black folks.
The dinner unfolds over a conversation between the chef and the guest collaborator. Together they share personal stories, reference scholarly text, all the while discussing the particular manifestation of black life in that community.
The conversation expands to include the dinner guests, who will enjoy a 4 course meal from our chefs, with the chef serving as discussion facilitator. Join us.
We are honored to co-present this event with Our WiseMen.
