This episode is all about Bartholomew Jones, a Memphis-based school teacher, hip hop artist, social activist and the founder of Cxffeeblack. With cxffeeblack Bartholomew explores the history of coffee, its deep ties to black culture and its potential for black empowerment. Cxffeeblack also supports and provides opportunities for people of color to create inspiring work. Bartholomew is our musical guest too, and shares some tracks from his recently released album, Cxffeeblack.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
