2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,475

Shivon Pearl Love and Khaliah D. Pitts will organize Our Mother’s Kitchens, using the works of Vertamae Smart-Grosvernor, Ntozake Shange, Zora Neale Hurston and Alice Walker to introduce young women of color to the ways in which the authors intersect food and language as a means of expression and cultural preservation. Continuing the use of traditions from the African diaspora, where art and life are one, this 3-day culinary and literature workshop will provide the young women of color participants with vital steps towards building optimal health, self-awareness and cultural connection through the ritual and art of cooking and storytelling.
