Facilitated by Ina Dixon, a PhD student at UNC-Chapel Hill, our conversation in the summer of 2018 will focus on the history of food and race in the South and in our local community. Our Civil Rights: Our Common Table is a program of Virginia Humanities and takes place on the second-to-last Tuesdays of the month from 5:30pm-7:30pm in the Danville Public Library Auditorium.

This session will examine the crossroads of food and work, discussing how different occupations shape what we ate during the heyday of tobacco and textiles and why.
