Back in April, Heinz, the LEE Initiative and Southern Restaurants for Racial Justice partnered to give grants to 70+ Black-owned restaurants and food initiatives across the nation.
We put a face to a few of those names with the Black Kitchen Podcast, a new audio series about modern Black cuisine. Hosted by soul food scholar and culinary historian Adrian Miller, the podcast goes deeper into the stories of 6 of these amazing founders. Each episode features illustrations by Black femme artists Lo Harris and Shanee Benjamin, as Heinz further uses their platform to elevate Black voices. Learn more about the project and the restaurants at BlackKitchenInitiative.com, and check out all 6 episodes of the Black Kitchen Podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, YouTube or wherever you get your podcasts. 👩🏿🍳🍅
