Description

This course looks at the historical and cultural development of food provisioning within African American culture. We explore how certain foodstuffs become traditional through the multi-ethnic societies of the early United States as well as in more recent historical moments like the Great Migration, the Dust Bowl, and the Black Power Movement. We will work to connect these moments to the everyday spaces of African American life by examining how domestic science, retail catalogs, radio, and television contribute to the symbolic meanings of food. By the end of the semester, students will better understand the contexts within which African Americans debate the value of group identity through food.
