Soul of DFW History of Soul Food Bus Tour!
April 22 @ 10:00 am - April 23 @ 2:30 pm
Join us for the “SOUL OF DFW” Food and Black History Bus Tour DALLAS EDITION! This will be our very first tour that we explore the history of soul food one bite at a time! We’ll visit historical local African American landmarks and learn about the significant contributions to our city. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Designated *surprise* stops at Black-owned restaurants for tastings of their popular chosen soul foods and desserts. Plus learn the history of those foods that have helped define what Southern food is today taught by local historian and food writer, Deah Berry Mitchell. Deah writes about Black food history for the Dallas Morning News, teaches an introductory course in American food history, and is the author of “Cornbread & Collard Greens: How West African Cuisine & Slavery Influenced Soul Food. Take in the sites stress-free and with a fun group of fellow history and food lovers while exploring the tastes of DFW from the comfort of a chauffeured bus.
