Join Emory University and local food community members for a lecture and discussion about the future and present of food justice movements. Dr. Alkon’s work seeks to “understand and advocate for food justice by exploring the ways that racial and economic identities and inequalities affect efforts to create sustainable food systems.“ Her first book, Black, White, and Green: Farmers Markets, Race, and the Green Economy, an ethnography of race and class at farmers markets in Berkeley and Oakland, is taught in food studies courses nationwide. She has also co-edited two books on food justice: Cultivating Food Justice with Dr. Julian Ageyman and The New Food Activism with Julie Guthman.

This Event will be on Friday, February 23, 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. in RARB 252.
