Mapping Food in Maryland & African-Americans and Poultry on the Eastern Shore

We turn to our weekly exploration of the future of our food system, Sound Bites. This week on the show, we hear about the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s Food Mapping project from project manger Amanda Behrens and data specialist Julia Simons. Their map is a visual and comprehensive overview of the food system and all of its components.

Later in the hour, we continue our Sound Bites episode with the role of African-Americans in the creation of the Eastern Shore poultry industry. Dr. Solomon Iyobosa Omo-Osagie II, Professor of Political Science at Baltimore City Community College, joins us to discuss his book, Commercial Poultry Production on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore: The Role of African Americans, 1930s to 1990s.
