Soul Food Monologues in the Twin Cities
The Soul Food Monologues: Stories of Food and Justice will take place on Wednesday, May 19th (7:00pm-8:30pm CST, 8:00pm-9:30pm EST). Hosted by History for the Future, one of this spring's featured Climates of Inequality partners, this hybrid in-person/virtual event will spotlight stories of community resilience from Twin Cities organizers and students in the University of Minnesota's Heritage Studies and Public History program. Performers will share their engagement with mutual aid and food as tools for organizing during the COVID-19 pandemic and the uprisings for justice for George Floyd.
This performance of The Soul Food Monologues is directed by renowned food justice activist LaDonna Redmond.
The event is part of this spring's schedule of Climates of Inequality programs highlighting community-driven environmental justice organizing in the Twin Cities.
Support for The Soul Food Monologues is provided by Thinking Food: Radically Reimagining Food Studies in the Twin Cities; Minnesota Transform, a Mellon Foundation Higher Education Grant Initiative; and the University of Minnesota's Heritage Studies and Public History program.
