A People’s History of Southern California Foodways

  • The Autry Museum In Griffith Park 4700 Western Heritage Way Los Angeles, CA, 90027 United States (map)

This symposium is a public exploration of the contributions that immigrants and people of color have made, and continue to make, to the development of California cuisine. These stories are too often missing or marginalized from mainstream narratives about the state’s food history. As a result, industrial food producers disproportionately benefit financially, while accumulating cultural capital, from stories told about the state’s foodways. By understanding the ways people of color and immigrants actively participated in the evolution of the state’s foodways, we can better understand the ways in which these populations have impacted California culture as a whole. Tickets include food. Alcohol not included.

Founder of SalviSoul and foodwriter Karla T. Vasquez will be one of the speakers during Saturday Oct 12th’s program.
