Sound Bites: The Native & Black Roots Of American Barbecue | Whole Foods In The Spotlight For Massive Overcharging & Organic Rating System

Michael TwittyJuly 9, 2015 – Segment 3

On the newest episode of our series on our food and our world, Sound Bites, we begin with a fascinating look at the history of barbecue with Michael Twitty, Culinary Historian of African and African American Foodways and blogger at Afroculinaria, based on his recent article for The Guardian, “Barbecue is an American tradition – of enslaved Africans and Native Americans.”

We close the show with a look of Whole Foods, in light of recent allegations of their massive overcharging and complaints from organic farmers about their rating system. With Denzel Mitchell, Founder of Five Seeds Family Farm and Apiary.
