Feeding Black: Community, Power & Place includes recipes, objects and recorded stories from the business owners Kaleema and Kareema Shakur-Muhammad, Eugene Takwa, Junior and Tafeswork Belayneh, along with TikTok and Instagram cooking videos of traditional African and Caribbean dishes with a contemporary twist. The display also showcases newly commissioned photography by Jonas Martinez and an original soundscape by Kayode ‘Kayodeine’ Gomez.
“The project as a whole, and the physical exhibit’s location in the Museum of London Docklands’ London, Sugar & Slavery gallery provides an important and unique opportunity to reflect on modern food culture and existing legacies around sugar and London’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.” – Aleema Gray, Community History Curator (Curating London)
Feeding Black: Community, Power & Place is part of the museum’s Curating London contemporary collecting programme, with funding from Arts Council England.
