Bringing Back Our Mothers’ Kitchens

Working collectively as Our Mothers’ Kitchens, Philadelphia-based A Blade of Grass Fellows Khaliah Pitts and Shivon Love produced a cooking camp and intimate dinner series to honor the literary and culinary history of black women writers like Zora Neale Hurston, Ntozake Shange, and Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor. The gatherings provided a space for community to read, cook, and eat together, inviting participants to celebrate the liberatory possibilities of food and language.
