Storytelling Cafe: Going Bananas!

Food & Identity in the African Diaspora

Thursday, July 12th, 7pm

Price: $20, includes taste samplings 

We will chart the course of the versatile starch–the plantain–as it has traveled from Africa to the Western Hemisphere.  Melissa Velazquez and Genaro Ozuna will conduct a presentation and food tastings of Garifuna hudutu and Dominican mangú. This will be followed by a short performance by the Wabafu Garifuna Dance Theater.


Luz Soliz is the director of the Wabafu Garifuna Dance Theater and is featured in City Lore’s current exhibit, What We Bring: New Immigrant Gifts
