Atlanta History Center and AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate, are pleased to host an evening with Adrian Miller, aka The Soul Food Scholar, in celebration of Soul Food Month and the release of his most recent book, Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue.

Adrian will chronicle how Black barbecuers, pitmasters, and restaurateurs helped develop this cornerstone of American foodways and how they are coming into their own today. It’s a smoke-filled story of Black perseverance, culinary innovation, and entrepreneurship. 

Though often pushed to the margins, African Americans have enriched a barbecue culture that has come to be embraced by all.

Adrian will celebrate and restore the faces and stories of the men and women who have influenced this American cuisine.

The event will be moderated by David Borghesani, Mars Wrigley Chocolate Historian. We hope you will join us!
