Michael Twitty, Afroculinaria | 50 People Who Are Changing the South in 2015 – Southern Living Mobile


I am pleased to announce that Southern Living, a magazine long revered in my family, named me and this blog among 50 to watch in 2015!  As I finish the research for The Cooking Gene and make my way to West Africa, I hope to live up to the promise of the honor. I want to change the South because it must change in order to survive. It was in our Ancestors hands that the South was forged, and it is in the capable hands of their descendants that it will be improved, strengthened and renewed.  I encourage you to read all of the bios and to celebrate the diverse contributions people are making to the path of Southern tradition. Enjoy!
