CAMPUS — Anyone interested in the many intersections of race and food in public discourse should consider attending the Food For Black Thought symposium tomorrow and Saturday for explorations of "Black experiences with food and the food system, past and present, in Austin and beyond" and how food discussions in academic research, public policy and popular media "involve, impact, and engage Black populations from transdisciplinary and community-based perspectives."
