About The Event

Scholar Hour is Sankofa's unique happy hour lecture series. Easy going and informative, crowd participation is strongly encouraged.

About Psyche Williams-Forson:

Psyche Williams-Forson is an American scholar and writer from  Virginia. She is currently the Associate Professor and Chair of American  Studies at the University of Maryland.

About Eating While Black:

Psyche A. Williams-Forson is one of our leading thinkers about food in America. In Eating While Black,  she offers her knowledge and experience to illuminate how anti-Black  racism operates in the practice and culture of eating. She shows how  mass media, nutrition science, economics, and public policy drive  entrenched opinions among both Black and non-Black Americans about what  is healthful and right to eat. Distorted views of how and what Black  people eat are pervasive, bolstering the belief that they must be  corrected and regulated. What is at stake is nothing less than whether  Americans can learn to embrace nonracist understandings and practices in  relation to food.
