Professor Taryn Jordan argues black history is sensed in the taste of soul food. Drawing on Cedric Robinson’s (2000) concept of the “black radical tradition,” which he defines as a form of black collective intelligence gathered through the accretion of struggle. Jordan asserts that Robinson’s exclusion of black women, specifically black women’s domestic work, from the “black radical tradition” elides social practices vital to black living that have an element of training built in. Jordan further contends that the exclusion of the black domestic work from the black radical tradition is the condition of possibility for soul food such as fried chicken to express history through taste. 

Grab n go lunch will be served.
