I think Twitty has a YouTube channel on “Food of the Enslaved”

I should watch that! I got to see him speak at Fort Snelling in Minneapolis (a couple of miles from my house), and he was incredibly entertaining and engaging. Besides showing us how the kitchen worked in the commander's house, he talked about what he was able to learn about the slave women who cooked there. He brought up the Dred Scott case - I hadn't realized that the famous Dred Scott had actually lived more or less in my neighborhood! The combination of technical, historical, and personal was really brilliant.
