On this episode of Meant To Be Eaten, Fred Opie, professor of foodways and history at Babson College and author of the book Hogs and Hominy joins Adedoyin Teriba, a professor of architectural history at Pratt, to discuss soul food and the spread of African-American culture and food across the globe. A few questions we’ll unpack on this show: what is soul food — and is it gentrifying? How do major historical events like the Civil Rights Movement influence food? And what feelings arise when you find a food from your homeland in an unfamiliar place?
