Author Michael Twitty to Share His Journey to Kosher Soul Food at Kent State

On Sept. 24, 2019, we were honored to welcome in culinary historian and Jewish educator Michael Twitty at Kent State. Twitty calls his way of cooking Kosher/Soul food “Afro Ashkefardi.” Black and Jewish communities are the only people commonly known to use their culinary works to talk about their history, all the while enjoying great food. His blog titled “Afroculinaria” gives voice to the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of African American-Jewish identity and experience. It was a heartfelt and enjoyable event.
