Join the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage for an evening with renowned chef and culinary historian Michael Twitty.
Twitty will visit the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Thursday, Dec. 1, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
In his talk, titled “A Place at the Table,” Twitty will examine the emerging topic of culinary justice—the idea that historically oppressed peoples have a right to authority, sovereignty, prosperity and acknowledgment for their contribution to national and global foodways. Join in a lively discussion of how the preparation of food unites and divides narratives and how food can be used for good.
Twitty is a chef, food writer and scholar, culinary historian and historical interpreter with special interests in African-American history, Jewish cultural issues and cultural politics.
The event will be held in conjunction with special exhibits “Our Global Kitchen” and “Light of Ours.”
The event costs $6 for students and teachers, $10 for Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage members, and $12 for non-members.
