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.
