Looking for a 20 minute deep dive into Black American food history and the contributions its made to the culture at large? Look no further. From the origins of barbecue, to what slaves ate, to self made Black millionaires who made their fortunes feeding people, to the integral role of Black chefs (and thus, naturally, local organizers) had in the civil rights movement. This will make you angry, reverent, and hungry. Also, the next time someone tries to tell you that America isn't a racist country just remember that Coon Chicken Inn was open and thriving within living memory.
