BHM: A Soul Food How-To

February 19, 2020

In commemoration of all African Americans have endured within American society, President Gerald Ford acknowledged Black History Month nearing the end of his presidential term in an attempt to “honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Each February, both figures and aspects influential to African culture are memorialized in an abundance of festivities.

On behalf of the Achona Staff, Chloe Mintz pays homage to BHM in filming the preparation of cornbread and jambalaya— dishes often associated with African-American cuisine.
