Welcome to the amazing 2020 Juneteenth Cookout Takeover! This initiative was started by a group of wonderful food bloggers to encourage the celebration of Juneteenth – a jubilee of freedom to commemorate the end of slavery – and to amplify the food traditions of black culinary creatives.
Juneteenth (a merge of the words/date June Nineteenth) marks the date in 1865 that the last enslaved people learned of their freedom.
And for over 150 years since, Black American families, home-cooks, chefs, and culinarians have commemorated the summer holiday with a wide range of food traditions that tell a story of the perseverance of a people.
This virtual cookout features nearly 70 participants with a wide range of recipes, such as Southern sweet potato pie, Chicken and Waffles, and pound cake.
