On February 20th, 2018, GABC will host A Taste of Black Austin: From Field to Table. This event will feature an exclusive look at the historical narrative of Black food subsistence, business and entrepreneurship from the plight of the farmer to the plate of the 21st century. Black farmers played an integral role in the founding of the agricultural and food industrial structure of the United States as a whole. This cultural, food, and art exhibition seeks to toast not only Black farmers, but the ways in which their toil has been transformed into American culinary classics and edible cultural traditions. This is an opportunity for the Austin community to fellowship,  network, and engage in an interactive experience about the historical, cultural, and economic implications of American cuisine and the Black American journey.
