The Newlin Series: “Seeing the Enslaved Cook”
A look behind the Stereotypes & the Myths
Enslaved cooks frequently appear in the historical record, but the lack of personal information about them often leaves us with a problematic view. Historic cooks Jerome Bias & Karen Becker will look at enslaved cooks as skilled tradespeople.
Samples of traditional African foods will be included. Also, a free cooking demonstration will follow on Saturday (10am-3pm) as part of the History at Work series.
