[PLAYBACK] ”So Let’s Look at the History of Black Food in America” feat. The Melanin Martha
It's summer break for Sufficiently Black so we're giving you an oldie but goodie! Before the main topic of discussion, the hosts discuss some problematic celebrities and the real definition of "cancel culture." In honor of Juneteenth, the Oreos give some background on the holiday and discuss how they celebrated (or didn't celebrate) growing up. The Melanin Martha aka Jordan Wimby joins the show to talk about platform that is dedicated to healing generational trauma by reconnecting with our ancestors and history through food. Jordan explains why its important for us to appreciate the food we eat and how to stop the anti-blackness in the food world. She touches on historical points in Netflix's High on the Hog, how our ancestors gained power in cooking and why "soul food" isn't less healthy than food mostly consumed by white people.
