COOKING UP HISTORY

“Bakers Against Racism: The Power of Community Activism through Food” Guest Chef: Paola VelezFeb. 22; Virtual demonstration at 6:45 p.m. For more information, see https://americanhistory.si.edu/topics/food/pages/cooking-historyChef Paola Velez, co-founder of Bakers Against Racism, will share a recipe from her home kitchen that reflects and embodies her identity as an Afro-Latina chef rooted in her family’s Dominican heritage. She will discuss her organizing efforts through Bakers Against Racism, an international movement that swept across social media in 2020, and her belief that no matter how small, every effort counts—including small-scale bake sales—in raising awareness and garnering support to end racism. This program is free and registration will open through the Smithsonian Associates website in January.This program is funded by the American Women’s History Initiative.
