What better way to kick off Black History Month than to reclaim health through heritage cuisine?
Oldways' 5th Annual African Heritage & Health Week is February 1 to 7, offering an educational opportunity to discuss, celebrate, and share healthful traditional African foods, history, and heritage. Visit the African Heritage & Health Week page for details.
We invite you to celebrate with us — whether you dine at a traditional African restaurant, home-cook an African Heritage dish, or reflect on your personal experiences with traditional African diaspora cuisine. Find us on social media (details below) and use #EatAfricanHeritage365 to share your AH&H Week photos, videos, or writings with us.
