In search of freedom, we find ourselves in Our Mothers' Kitchens.

Using the works of Vertamae Smart-Grosvernor, Ntozake Shange, Zora Neale Hurston and Alice Walker, Our Mothers’ Kitchens seeks to introduce young women of color to the ways in which these Black female authors intersect food and language as a means of liberation, expression and cultural preservation. Continuing the use of traditions from the African diaspora, where art and life are one, this 3-day culinary and literature workshop will take a vital step towards building optimal health, self-awareness and cultural connection through the ritual and art of cooking and storytelling.
