In honor of the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, DC, we’ve created a private tour that begins with flavors and techniques popular in West Africa, while learning how the mixing of cultures around the Atlantic influenced food choices. We travel through Washington, DC neighborhoods to try some of the oldest soul food recipes served in any restaurant in the world. Finally, we end with a sweet taste of today’s modern soul food movement.
Tour covers just over a mile, and lasts approximately 3 hours.
Proceeds go to support the UMD-HBCU Graduate Mentoring Scholarship Fund, started in honor of Dr. Tony Whitehead, Professor of Medical Anthropology, Director and Founder of the Cultural Systems Analysis Group, Department of Anthropology at the University of Maryland.
