It’s time for a fresh story. In Austin and in cities across the United States, Black youth and their families face gentrification, outmigration, displacement, and rebuilding. But their food experiences are often represented without this context and without young Black voices. RSVP for an opening performance and interactive talk that explores representations of eating while young and Black, their impact, and why shifting the narrative matters now. Interwoven with clips from *Eating While Young and Black*, a 4-year multimedia project with African-American and Afro-Latinx youth from Austin, Texas. Performance by Xavier Clark, with interactive talk by Dr. Naya Armendarez Jones of Food for Black Thought.
Free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30, event begins at 7 pm. Seating is limited. RSVP on Eventbrite at eatingwhileyoungandblack.eventbrite.com.
Location: Huston-Tillotson University, Agard-Lovinggood Auditorium,
