A shared space for self care inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and the life and legacy of Alice Dunbar-Nelson.
Join chef Jena Harris and Professor Pysche Williams-Forson for an evening of self care grounded in the salon-style traditions of the Harlem Renaissance. Chef Jena will use accessible ingredients in a live demonstration and welcome participants to make and enjoy sustaining food and drink using recipes shared in advance. Throughout the event, we will discuss and learn more from Professor Williams-Forson about how the contributions of authors, artists, and activists to American art and politics have built movements which center radical self love. This free, interactive program is a collaboration with the Rosenbach's I Am an American! exhibit and the Free Library's Making Her Mark exhibit -- both of which highlight the life and legacy of Alice Dunbar-Nelson. For more information, visit freelibrary.org/exhibitions and www.alicedunbarnelson.com
If you are in Philadelphia and would like to receive a free box of ingredients to use in preparing the recipes, please contact chef Jena at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your request. Please note: supplies are limited and will need to be picked up unless alternative arrangements are made in advance.
