Celebrated chef Marcus Samuelsson will share reflections on race, class, place and equity in the American food landscape, drawing from his forthcoming book The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food. He will then be joined by GSD Professor in Practice and founder of urbanAC, Toni L. Griffin; Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem; and Mark Raymond, Director of the Graduate School of Architecture at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. The group will come together for a conversation exploring the deep and intertwining relationships between memory, identity and authorship that exist for Black creatives who reference, make and keep place through their work.
This lecture will be followed by a Q&A. You may ask questions during this time using the Q&A feature on Zoom, or you may submit questions for the speaker beforehand using this link: https://harvard.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5gRhKfTihekkfQ1
