Welcome to the first episode of the Afros + Knives mini-series on Radio Cherry Bombe, hosted by Chef Tiffani Rozier. Afros + Knives is a weekly podcast and media platform created by Tiffani that features Black women who work and lead in food, beverage, hospitality, food justice, and food media. “I launched Afros + Knives because I wanted to hear the stories of women who worked in food and look like me,” said Tiffani. “Over the past 15 years, I had always noted the absence of their voices.”
For the next four weeks, Tiffani will be talking to women at the intersection of food and social justice. Her first guest is Jocelyn Jackson, the creative force behind Justus Kitchen, an initiative dedicated to creating love and liberation over shared meals, and co-founder of People’s Kitchen Collective, the Oakland-based organization nourishing souls, feeding minds, and fueling a movement. Tune in to hear about Jocelyn’s organizations and the work they’re doing, her time in West Africa, and more.
