Raphael Wright is a social entrepreneurs that’s opening a grocery store in Detroit. While still in the development stages of the venture, this journey has exposed him to the social, political, educational, and economic forces that dictates what food we eat, how we eat, when we eat, and why we eat. Soul Food is a podcast that forces listeners to view food as much more as a delicious thing we eat but also as a tool of power in the world. AND... We're gonna save the traditional known as Soul Food Sundays.
“All I wanted to do was open a grocery store in my city.” I’m in an almost zen-like mode with Neighborhood Grocery. I’ve been through too much to turn around now. This special episode is my therapy session with the Urban Agitators Podcast.
We talked about the city as a whole, the company’s beginning, the obstacles I’ve come up against in securing a space, shady dealings and people, infringement, and the Russians. Russians? Yes, Russians.
I went all the way in to clear my soul! I hope y’all enjoy.
