The Newlin Series: “Seeing the Enslaved Cook: Behind the Stereotypes & the Myths”

August 28, 2020

219 South Cheyney Road, Glen Mills, PA 19342

  • Details

    Enslaved cooks frequently appear in the historical record, but the lack of personal information about them often leaves us with a problematic view. Historic cooks Jerome Bias & Karen Becker will look at enslaved cooks as skilled tradespeople.

    Advance registration is suggested for programs in the Newlin Series. To register, please call 610.459.2359.

    Samples of traditional African foods will be included. Also, a free cooking demonstration will follow on Saturday (10am-3pm) as part of the History at Work series.
