Black History Month Celebration

Noted Soul Food Scholar and James Beard Foundation Award-winning author, Adrian Miller describes soul food as “a lightning rod in our culture.” With many African American traditions centered around a communal table, it’s no wonder that dishes like fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, fried okra, and skillet cornbread are time-cherished family recipes. Join us at the table as we honor the achievements and contributions of African Americans. For more information, please contact Deryle McCann at 518-381-1149.
