This is a hybrid event. Registration is required for Zoom attendance. In-person attendance at the SFPL Main Library does not require registration; seats available first come, first served.
Bryant Terry is a James Beard & NAACP Image Award-winning chef, educator and author. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of 4 Color Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House and Ten Speed Press. For the 2022–2023 academic year Terry will be an Artist Fellow/Visiting Scholar at UC Berkeley as a member of the second cohort of Abolition Democracy Fellows. Since 2015 he has been the Chef-in-Residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco where he creates public programming at the intersection of food, farming, health, activism, art and culture. In regard to his work, Terry’s mentor Alice Waters says, “Bryant Terry knows that good food should be an everyday right and not a privilege.” His latest book, Black Food: Stories, Art & Recipes From Across the African Diaspora, captures the broad and divergent voices of the African Diaspora through the prism of food.
