***New Performance Date***
The new date of The Soul Food Monologue performance is now tentatively scheduled for Wednesday May 19th at 7:00pm CST.
The Soul Food Monologue performance will no longer be held on Monday April 12th. In the wake of the police murder of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, we have decided to postpone The Soul Food Monologue performance.
We hope you all are safe and have a chance to hold space for yourselves and your communities.
The Soul Food Monologues: Stories of Food and Justice features Twin Cities food justice organizers and University of Minnesota students sharing their relationship to food’s tangled history in our community. Performers will share their engagement with mutual aid and food as a tool for organizing during the uprisings for justice for George Floyd during a global pandemic. Renowned Food Justice Activist LaDonna Redmond directs a courageous and soul-searching process to bring out their stories.
Produced by LaDonna Redmond, this performance of Soul Food Monologues is organized by History for the Future and Climates of Inequality, a project of the Humanities Action Lab.
Support provided by Thinking Food: Radically Reimagining Food Studies in the Twin Cities, Minnesota Transform, a Mellon Foundation Higher Education Grant Initiative, and the University of Minnesota Heritage Studies and Public History Program.
