Food History: Soul Food

Soul food can be a divisive term. How is soul food different than Southern food? Does soul food refer to rib-sticking food like fried chicken and ribs, or more everyday fare like red beans and rice? Soul food pioneers like Princess Pamela point the way towards an answer. Join Justin Dodd, Chris Scott, and Dr. Jessica B. Harris as they explore the history of soul food.
