The Spirit of Soul Food


Produced by Heartland Stories 

Theresa Marquez, host of Heartland Stories Radio, speaks with Dr. Christopher Carter. In his new book, The Spirit of Soul Food: Race, Faith, and Food Justice, Dr. Carter explores the role of soul food in reclaiming culinary history from African heritage. He points out how colonialist history has directed the development of U.S. food policy, and how decolonizing our diet can play a critical role in preserving Black history, community, and culinary genius.
