In Black Liberation movements in the United States, food plays not only a biological
role but also a political one. In this talk, Dr. Ashanté Reese explores the ways in which
Black Liberation movements use food as a platform for mobilizing communities and
making connections between historical and contemporary movements, and also considers
how organizing around food demonstrates multifaceted resistance.
