Being African American and Jewish is for many 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, this includes food and the ways Black and Jews have mediated otherness and oppression using what they eat as well as the global stories Diasporic foodways have to offer. Join Michael on an exploration and a taste of what he calls, “Koshersoul.”

This presentation is part of the Jacob Perlow Event Series sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Special Programs. The event is co-organized by the Tang Teaching Museum, Sustainability Office, Environmental Studies and Sciences Program, Intergroup Relations, English Department.

(The event is a diversity event. There will be food demonstration and book signing accompanying the event.)
