2015 "What's for Dinner?" Lecture Series
The Detroit Black Community Food
Security Network's 2015 "What's for Dinner?" Lecture Series is moving to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African
American History. Lectures will take place from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. on the third Saturdays of April, June, August
and October. There is no cost for admission.
We are kicking-off
the 2015 Series, on April 18, with a lecture by nationally acclaimed author Dr. Jessica B. Harris. Dr. Harris is the
author of twelve cookbooks that share recipes from various parts of the African Diaspora. Her latest book, "High
on the Hog: A Culinary Journey from Africa to America," is a fascinating read that chronicles the influence of Africa
on the foodways of America. Dr. Harris will sign copies of her book immediately following the lecture.
The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is located at 315 E. Warren,
Detroit, MI 48202. For more information call the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network at 313.345.3663.
