Spring 2020 Book Club Selection

The Spring 2020 book selection for the joint Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Program and African American Studies is Every Nation Has Its Dish: Black Bodies & Black Food in Twentieth-Century America by Jennifer Jensen Wallach.  The book club meeting (there will only be one since it’s a relatively short book) will be lead by Jacob Steere-Williams.  If you are interested in participating, please let Sandy Slater know and she’ll send you a copy of the book via campus mail. Once we have a group of interested parties we will create a doodle-poll to find the best time for our meeting.
