Museum of the African Diaspora Chef-in-Residence, Bryant Terry and Middle East Children’s Alliance presents

Decolonize Your Food
From Turtle Island to Palestine, an afternoon of food and conversation about food sovereignty with food justice activists

Featuring world-class chefs
Laila El-Haddad, Reem Assil, Bryant Terry, and Shakirah Simley

While food has long been a tool of oppression, food sovereignty is a powerful organizing concept to create a sustainable, culturally appropriate food supply for historically marginalized communities. Join us for a panel with Laila El-Haddad, Reem Assil, and Shakira Simley, food justice activists who have been active in advancing the conversation about the power of food in the struggles for justice in the United States, Palestine, and beyond. The conversation will be followed by a reception with a sampling of exquisite Palestinian cuisine prepared by Reem’s.

We apologize but this event is SOLD OUT. We will be livestreaming the event for those who are unable to attend – details posted soon.
