[HISTORIC FOODWAYS] African American Foodways; Explorations of History & Culture

Urbana and Chicago: University of Illinois Press, 2007. Paperback. 183 pages. 23 x 15 cm. Ranging from seventeenth-century West African fare to contemporary fusion dishes using soul food ingredients, the essays in this book provide an introduction to many aspects of African American foodways and an antidote to popular misconceptions about soul food. Examining the combination of African, Caribbean, and South American traditions, the volume's contributors offer lively insights from history, literature, sociology, anthropology, and African American studies to demonstrate how food's material and symbolic values have contributed to African Americans' identity for centuries.
