{Are You A Soul Food Junkie?}

Posted on April 1st, 2014

Join Exeter Gardens Project Director Hasdai Westbrook on Sunday at the Lewis Museum for a panel discussion on food justice featuring Councilman Nick Mosby, Denzel Mitchell of Five Seeds Farm, Land of Kush co-owner Naijha Wright, Michael J. Wilson of Maryland Hunger Solutions, and Baltimore Food Access Coordinator Sarah Buzogany. The panel will follow a screening of Byron Hurt’s documentary, Soul Food Junkies, a truly lyrical and profound exploration of the role of food in African-American life and its complex power to both sustain and destroy.

The event is at 2pm on Sunday, April 6th at the Lewis Museum (corner of Pratt and President streets). Did we mention that it’s completely FREE!!! See the museum’s website for more information, or register for the event on Facebook.

Variously described as "ChangeMonger-in-Chief," "dreamer and schemer," and "evil genius for good," Hasdai is the founder of ChangingMedia, a digital agency that helps visionary organizations harness the power of new media to create social change. An enthusiastic passport collector, Hasdai became a U.S. citizen on the 4th of July and is a fierce patriot with little to no interest in soccer. He has transformed a derelict lot into a flourishing urban farm as co-founder of Exeter Gardens, and is trying to make textiles sing with the Synesthesia Musical Loom Project. He has been carjacked in Baltimore but still loves it. His goal in life was to be a pirate, but he gets sea-sick.
