It’s #DeenDay please help me get the word out about The Cooking Gene on Twitter

If you’re on Twitter, help me celebrate #DeenDay by helping me to get this tweet retweeted 1,619 times. Today 4 years ago, I wrote my Open Letter to Paula Deen that changed my life and career for the good. Because of the opportunities I’ve been blessed with I’ve been able to be more accessible to youth and communities that need my engagement. The Cooking Gene presents a similar but bigger opportunity to be able to engage others on a deeper level and to start a national and international conversation about heritage, food, culinary justice, and racial reconciliation and healing.  If you’re on Twitter please help us get to 1619.
