A Taste of How Long ’til Black Future Month?

June 23, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Chef Tonii Hicks will prepare a citrusy herb soup inspired by “Red Dirt Witch” while we discuss Black history and future.

Join us at Blackwell Library as we explore what is meaningful to us about Black history and Black future through story, culture, and food – featuring “Red Dirt Witch” from How Long ’til Black Future Month .

In Red Dirt Witch, Emmaline is raising her children to survive in 1950s Alabama, when her daughter, Pauline, shows her a future she never would have imagined.

Find How Long ’til Black Future Month and others by N. K. Jemison here at the Free Library of Philadelphia.

Flavorful, nutritious, and eclectic— our Healthy Communities programs center healthy food traditions of Black and Brown people around the world.
