Adedoyin Teriba and Fred Opie on the origins of soul food
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?
