#TakeTimeThursday 4-1-21 Foodways of the African Diaspora with Dr Sage Anderson Brown
Thursday, April 1 | 2:30 – 3pm This month our Take Time Thursdays will be about food in conjunction with ACM’s year long theme, “Our Food Our Future.” This year long examination of food history, culture, and justice includes the exhibit, “Food for the People: Eating and Activism in Greater Washington” and related programs designed to educate and encourage audiences to take action to create a more equitable future. Come explore ways to honor your body and ancestral foodways by eating well! Learn about African Diasporic food cultures through plant-based wellness and cuisine with chef and scholar Dr. Sade Anderson-Brown. Dr. Anderson-Brown is a mother, birth worker, food and racial justice organizer, consultant, and founder of Ujima Consulting Collective. Dr. Anderson-Brown’s food justice work in Wards 7 & 8 of the nation’s capital culminated in her doctoral dissertation entitled Black Food Matters: Surviving Anti-Blackness and Food Insecurity in Washington, D.C. As a member of Black Dirt Farm Collective, Sade helps to promote Afroecology, a methodology that assists in reconnecting Black communities to land, food, and healing. Sade has ample experience building connections across identities through gardening, cooking, political education, dialogue, and facilitation. #Take Time Thursdays with the Anacostia Community Museum gives participants a chance to take time for wellness, health, and creativity with artists, thought leaders, performers, wellness practitioners and others.
