**ABOUT TODAY’S GUEST**** In Celebration of Black History Month, Historian and Author Adrian Miller stopped by the Black Fundraisers' Podcast to discuss African and Black Influence on food in America.

Adrian distinguishes southern cooking from "soul food" and shares the origins of some of our favorite dishes. His research suggests some of the foods we know and have origins in African communities. While other fan favorites, like BBQ are rooted in Native American Culture.

Adrian also shares details on his latest book, Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue, which discusses the culinary contributions Indigenous people, Native Americans and Blacks have made to make BBQ what it is today.
