In this special episode of “Race, Health & Happiness” we are talking about — FOOD!
To complete the menu I’ve got two guests. First I speak with registered dietitian Tameika Shaw, who tells us about how she works with members of communities that are experiencing oppression, and helps them find ways to eat healthy authentic food, with a joyful spirit! After that I speak with graduate student Gurneet Dhami, who tells us about the creative resistance that is happening in the field of dietetics.
Both of my guests are thriving in a field that has a history of both excluding BIPOC people, and reinforcing the racist notion that European food is somehow healthier or superior to other foods. Despite this, these two women of color are making magic in the margins, and how sweet it is! We even recorded part of this episode in Tameika’s kitchen!
You may need to get a snack as you listen to this one … Bon appetit!
