The Skirball Cultural Center hosts Kosher/Soul: Black and Kosher Foodways with chef and food writer Michael W. Twitty. Originally from Washington, D.C., Twitty is an African-American Jew who runs the blog Afroculinaria and teaches Judaic studies. In his first talk, Twitty discusses his experiences being both African-American and Jewish. In his second talk, he discusses the African-American/Jewish relationship with food and shares recipe samples from his forthcoming first cookbook, The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African-American Culinary History in the Old South, in which he looks at both the history of and his family's connection to Southern cuisine.
