Food, Identity and Community

Food Studies at SpelmanOn Thursday, March 30, the Food Studies Program will host a conversation with African-American women food scholars Monica White, Ph.D., assistant professor of environmental justice at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; LaDonna Redmond, food justice activist, and Alison Brown, C'2007, doctoral candidate in food policy, Tufts University.

They will be discussing and exploring the intersections of race, gender and class in food justice work — both within and outside of academia. The conversation will include a discussion about how lack of food equity impacts communities of color and is situated in structural racism.

The symposium, which is sponsored by Spelman College's food studies program, Office of the President, Social Justice Program and LINCS STEM Scholars, will be of interest to the College's health careers, environmental science, social justice, STEM and biomedical scholars.
