Through the Eyes of Art, A Black History Month Celebration: The Cookout

Black History Month graphic about The Cookout.

MoPOP, Museum of Pop Culture, in Seattle is putting together some incredible programming for the 8th annual Through the Eyes of Art, A Black History Month Celebration. Throughout the month, MoPOP will be inviting people from all over to come together (virtually), have deep conversations centered around the theme – The Cookout – covering a wide range of topics from soul food cuisine and Seattle's Black-owned food community to important issues related to health and wellness, food justice, and access.  

The month will conclude with an all-virtual cook-along with special guest Danielle Alex on Sunday, February 28 at 6:00pm PST. Participants will learn how to cook a delicious soul food dish; how food is a form of cultural identity and an important part of the black experience; how they can support local black restaurants; and help support food justice programs and get to be a part of a very fun and important Seattle community. 

Additional event details can be found here.

In continued support of our local Illuminators, and to help provide a voice for Seattle’s communities of color, Provenance’s Hotel Theodore is proud to support this historic, live virtual event, and look forward to continuing to offer a diverse range of art, culture and events in the community in which we serve.
