An Evening with Black Forager On Food Justice Through Foraging

Friday, April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$25 – $45

Alexis Nikole Nelson aka Black Forager uses her platform to engage with millions-yelling, singing, and celebrating the hidden bounty of edible plants waiting to be found in our backyards, on our nature hikes, growing from our sidewalks and in our parks across the world.

In her life and work she reframes the world of food, excitedly asking us to slow down, and (safely!) explore the sustainable and delicious food choices all around us. Elemental to her work is the importance of marginalized histories, peeling back the historical food layers of Black, African, and Indigenous food traditions that have often been repressed. Through her work she seeks to empower everyone around the world-in food deserts and beyond-to learn about, grow, cook, and enjoy food in an accessible way.

Join us for an engaging and joyful evening of conversation with Alexis and CIIS associate professor, activist, and licensed creative arts therapist Britton Williams. In their conversation they take us on an exploration of Alexis’ life and work, food justice and foraging, and on a journey through the woods and oceans in search of edible plants to enrich palates and the planet.

Sliding scale $25 to $45. Learn more about this and other programs here.
