COVID Activism & "Notes of a Young Black Chef" with Kwame Onwuachi

Date TBA


A month ago, Chef Onwuachi's restaurant Kith/Kin was one of the hottest reservations in the country. But COVID-19 has closed its doors and turned the James Beard Award-winning Chef into an activist. He joins Liz Bacelar, a journalist and mentor since the start, in a candid chat on how he has been fighting for local restaurants and their employees, on facing racism in the culinary world, and his hit memoir, “Notes From a Young Black Chef,” becoming a Hollywood film.
