Black history is not just politics and arts and athletics -- it is also sweet potatoes and peanuts. It's taste and bellies and bodies. It's all the recipes for survival that appear in cookbooks written by Black American authors.
My daughter and I share a cookbook collection that includes over 1,000 volumes many of them written by African-Americans. In honor of Black History Month, I shared my list of the ten greatest African-American cookbooks of all time.
See my list at Huffington Post’s Black Voices.
Thanks as usual to Gina Misiroglu of Red Room for putting me in touch with the Huffington Post people. It’s just one of the great ways she's bringing traffic to Red Room and getting attention for Red Room's authors.
