It's time for a fresh story.
In Austin and in cities across the United States, Black youth and their families face gentrification, outmigration, displacement, and rebuilding. However, their food experiences are often represented without this context and without their stories.
Join us for an opening performance and interactive talk that explores representations of eating while young and black, their impact, and why shifting the narrative matters now. Interwoven with clips from *Eating While Young and Black*, a 4-year multimedia project with African-American and Afro-Latinx youth from Austin, Texas.
Opening performance by Xavier Clark
Interactive Talk with Dr. Naya Armendarez Jones, co-founder of Food for Black Thought
Dialogue with Dr. Jones, Dr. Kevin Thomas and Ms. Letisha Brown of FFBT
Free and open to the public.
Doors open at 6:15 PM; program begins at 7 PM. Seating is limited. Let us know you're coming! Tickets required. RSVP here on Eventbrite.
Hosting provided by Huston Tillotson University.
