Food and African American Identity

The way we produce and consume food speaks to our values, history and the complexity of our identities. Gillian Richards-Greaves, assistant professor of anthropology, examines the formation of community and identity within the African-American population, particularly in the South, through the lens of food. The discussion will take place on November 5th at 10 a.m. in the Myrtle Beach Education Center Room 108 on 79th Ave N. Free. Presented by Coastal Carolina University’s Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts American Studies Lecture Series: American Identities.
