EATING THE OTHER: FOOD, RACE AND YOU
Thursday, August 4, 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd.
Join Dr. Sharon P. Holland, associate professor of African and African-American Studies at Duke University, for a discussion of race as it relates to agribusiness, farmers’ markets and the slow food culture. Rarely do scholars investigate the cultural bias of food. For example, a “bête noir” is a rich, flourless, chocolate cake
that translates “black beast.” How does a term so loaded become part of the food studies lexicon? Dr. Holland will explore this and other food issues with us.

MEET ROSIE THE RIVETER
Sunday, August 7, 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd.
Rosie the Riveter appears at the library! During World War II, women riveted, welded and made bullets, working in defense industry factories to aid the war effort. Rosie the Riveter is a composite figure drawn from records and memories of actual women defense workers, unsung heroines who helped to win the war. Dr. Sally Ann Drucker, who previously appeared here as Emma Goldman, presents this costumed re-creation.
