⁣Black food anthropology and media is a big deal these days. Think books
like Michael W. Twitty's 'The Cooking Gene' and Bryant Terry's 'Black
Food' or Netflix shows like High On the Hog and Fresh, Fried and Crispy,
to name a few. There are also numerous social media accounts dedicated
to Black food from around the Diaspora, be it chefs of all types and
foodies alike.

One account that has recently caught my eye is Black Food Fridays, an
initiative that encourages everyone to support Black-owned food vendors
and creatives each and every Friday or as founder KJ Kearney also puts
it: "Black Food Fridays is like #TacoTuesdays but for Black people
food!" The North Charleston native launched the site in April 2020, has
been seen or featured on The Today Show, The Takeout, Charleston's The
Post and Courier, Mic.com, and has amassed over 160,000+ followers. On
this episode. we'll be talking about Black people’s present
interpretation and understanding of our food and what the future holds
for preserving and sharing time-honored traditions/cooking styles.
