March 26, 2017, Sunday - More than a Single Story: Reclaiming our Food at The Loft

Time:   2:00pm - 4:00 pm

Location: Target Performance Hall, The Loft, 1011 Washington Avenue South

More than a Single Story: Reclaiming our Food

Food has always been a tool for organizing, celebrating, and creating community. By those determined to assert and maintain power, it has been a means of gaining control of the people. Human bodies and land—a natural resource like air and water, have been commodified. Food became a privilege instead of a human right.  

In this discussion with Pakou Hang, LaDonna Sanders Redmond, Princess Titus, and Diane Wilson we will hear how colonization and commodification have affected our communities’ relationships with food and how we can reclaim the food that is meaningful to us. 

Advanced tickets guarantee a general admission seat and help cover the Loft's costs to host the event. Pay-what-you-can tickets are available at the door 30 minutes prior to the event on a first-come, first-served basis. No one turned away for lack of funds. Doors open 30 minutes before the event. Seating is general admission (not assigned).
