Local catch by Chef Ricky Moore of Saltbox Seafood Joint in Durham, + other coastal fare
Fall issue of Southern Cultures quarterly including Charles Farrell's photographs of Brown's Island Mullet Camp, 1938, + other features on southern waters
Plus Live Music and an Exhibition:
Tunes by Wayne Martin & photographs by Charles Farrell, compiled and introduced by historian David Cecelski
To celebrate the release of the Fall 2014 special water issue of Southern Cultures, a quarterly published by UNC Press, the Center for the Study of the American South welcomes Ricky Moore of Durham's Saltbox Seafood Joint to serve up some of his signature seasonal, sustainable seafood from the Carolina coast. $20 (starting price) gets you "Fish and an Ish": a plate of Ricky's delicious seafood plus the special issue of Southern Cultures.
The evening also kicks off a photo exhibition, "An Eye for Mullet." Photos featured in the exhibit were taken in a North Carolina mullet camp by Charles A. Farrell during the 1930s, and collected by historian David Cecelski for an annotated photo essay that appears in the water issue of Southern Cultures. Cecelski will present part of that work at the reception. "Our world today is so different than that of only a century ago," he writes, "that few people can recognize even the most basic aspects of daily life and labor as seen in [these] photographs." Yet the black-and-white images reveal "the changing nature of our relationship to the ocean and seashore."
Come celebrate 20 years of Southern Cultures and a much longer tradition of fishing on the North Carolina coast!
