University Libraries presents an exhibit for Black History Month celebrating the culinary history contained in Hoole special Collections.  The exhibit,  African American Foodways: A History in Cookbooks will be on display from February until May 2021  in the Pearce Foyer on the 2nd floor of Gorgas Library. 

 

Featuring items from the David Walker Lupton African American Cookbook Collection, this exhibit provides an overview of Black foodways as illustrated in cookbooks. Is African American cuisine a branch of Southern cooking or actually its root? Is it all “soul food” — and what does that even mean? It looks at historic trends and evolutions in order to understand who and where, exactly, this cuisine comes from, where it’s been, and where it’s going
