“We have to radically reenvision our food system and de-corporatize it, and then I think we’ll see a shift to a more healthy and just way of growing food.”
Today, Christopher Carter joins guest host Karma Chávez for a conversation about his new book, The Spirit of Soul Food. They talk about Black veganism, the history of soul food, reimagining farming for a more just world, and much more.
