PROGRAM CANCELED
The National Museum of African American History and Culture hosts a thought-provoking conversation on food insecurity in Washington, D.C. Julianne Malveaux will moderate a discussion among urban anthropologist Ashanté Reese, food justice activist Michele Tingling-Clemmons, and Samir Meghelli, Chief Curator, Anacostia Community Museum regarding their efforts to ensure equitable food access. The speakers will discuss how black residents navigate and resist unequal food distribution systems through community gardening and resource sharing. After the presentation, audience participants will have the opportunity to share their stories and ideas on how to combat structural forces that determine food access in urban areas.

A Seat at the Table is an interactive program for participants to consider challenging questions about race, identity and economic justice over a family-style meal. This program will be produced as part of the Smithsonian Material Culture Forum.

*Plant-based options will be available

Co-Sponsors:  Smithsonian Material Culture Forum and Anacostia Community Museum
