Food as protest

Hosted by

Tunde Wey is a Nigerian chef with a rather unusual traveling dinner series Blackness in America. The food Wey serves is the Nigerian fare he left behind after moving to the United States at age 16. But the jollof rice, quail and braised trotter stew he serves are secondary to the conversation at the table, where discomfort, in Evan's words, often attenuates appetite. She recently attended one of Wey's meals in Highland Park.
