What does it mean to be Southern? What sets the Southern aesthetic apart from other regions of the country? To complement the themes of Reckonings and Reconstruction: Southern Photography from the Do Good Fund, we will delve into an investigation of how the long, conflicting, and rich history of the South influences art and creativity across disciplines.
Food anthropologist, writer, and the well-known host of the podcast Setting the Table, Debra Freeman, will join us live to look at African American foodways throughout America, but particularly in Virginia and the greater South. Debra writes about the intersection of race, culture, and food. In keeping with the themes of “Reckonings and Reconstructions: Southern Photography from the Do Good Fund,” Freeman is the perfect guide to navigate this exhibition’s journey through the historic and modern South. Join us as we talk and taste our way to a better understanding regional identity through food.
