Afro-Vegans Bryant Terry and Emory Douglas
This program is part of our Food Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.
Food intersects with many facets of human life. Culture, art, family, nutrition and even social justice all share a common thread in what and how a person cooks. James Beard award-winning chef and Oakland food justice activist Bryant Terry has dedicated his life to dissecting these complicated themes while also honoring their tradition. Using only real ingredients, he strives to nourish both his local community and the black community at large through afro-vegan cooking, something he thinks is the future of food.
Joining Bryant Terry at INFORUM is Emory Douglas, artist and legendary minister of culture for the Black Panther Party, whose work still resonates decades after the organization’s founding. Together Douglas and Terry will examine how art and food are the cornerstone of culture and how they can be used to not only foster community but also transform it. This conversation will be moderated by KALW’s Rose Aguilar.
