Kosher / Soul: Black-Jewish Identity Cooking

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 – 12:00pm to 2:00pm
1207 Van Munching Hall (VMH)

Being African American and Jewish is a combination that many can’t wrap their heads around. However, for thousands of Jews of color; having heritage, faith and family in both Diasporas—African and Jewish—and their many intersections means creating material, social and

ideational lives that interweave identities and histories. For Michael Twitty—food blogger, Judaics teacher and writer on Jewish cultural issues—this includes food and the ways Blacks and Jews have mediated otherness and oppression using what they eat as well as the global stories Diasporic foodways have to offer.

Michael Twitty is a culinary and cultural historian and the creator of Afroculinaria.com.

He will be signing copies of his book, “The Cooking Gene” immediately following the event.

Event is free and open to the public. Kindly RSVP to Debra Kirsch at dakirsch@umd.edu or 301-405-4975. More information can be found at jewishstudies.umd.edu/events/kosher-soul-black-jewish-identity-cooking
