Bigger Fish to Fry

By Carolyn Mason
"Bigger Fish to Fry" is podcast series focusing on the food history of enslaved people, the nutrition of enslaved people, and the legacy that slavery, health, and diet have on modern populations. I want to answer the following question: How did the foodways of enslaved people, including their diet and nutrition, affect their health? For American black people, the history of our ancestors is often limited to the struggles and suffering that they endured. This podcast is meant to bridge the gap between academic and non-collegiate audiences, who deserve to understand the lives of their ancestors.
