Food & Folklore "Family Reunions"
Eatonville Restaurant's Food & Folklore series celebrates the "family reunion" Wednesday, August 24 at 6:30 PM. Traditionally, from August through October family and friends gather for reunions, homecomings, and revivals. For African Americans, these occasions bring the generations together to mark milestones, set a path for the future, and discover or rediscover one's roots. Food is often the conduit in telling the story of a family's journey through history.
