Food has often been a way for activist communities to fundraise, connect, and spread the word about their cause. Explore the origins of the link between food and activism with the abolitionist food writers of the Civil War. Examine suffrage cookbooks from the turn of the 20th century and the earliest LGBTQ cooking pamphlets from the 1906s. Analyze the People's Cookbook of Philadelphia, a community of organizers depicted through recipes. Learn how food is still used to connect and advocate for causes to this day. Led by Sarah Lohman, a culinary historian and bestselling author of several books, including her latest, Endangered Eating: Exploring America’s Vanishing Cuisine.
