Bryant Terry, a modern day Renaissance man of food (chef, educator, author and food justice activist) hosted In Defense of Food: A Spoken Word Affair presented in association with the Museum of the African Diaspora. The audience fell in love with their favorite foods all over again, suffered through tearful breakups, and then went on to have torrid affairs behind their favorite foods’ backs inspired by the evenings’ poets. Performers kept the beat going non-stop, with pieces from greats like Hadeel Ramdan, Brandon Santiago, Sarah O’Neal, Aaron Abelman and Simone Crew. Simone curated the evening, and, for her passionate poetry and performances, has been featured on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” and at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
