We dug deep into the popularity of Southern food, and its roots in black history that are often erased in a trend-driven food landscape. We also delve into the homogeneity of food media itself, by talking through actionable steps we need in order to move the race and food conversation forward. Nicole also takes a few minutes to give a shout out to the many black food writers doing great work (and who have been there the whole time!).
