Description - Black Hunger by Doris Witt
Highlighting the importance of food for men as well as women, Doris Witt traces the promotion of soul food. A discussion of cookbook author Vertamae Grosvenor, who distanced herself from the myth of plantation mammy by reimagining soul food as "vibrant cooking," sets the stage for Witt's concluding argument that the bodies and appetites of African American women should be viewed as central to contemporary conversations about eating disorders and reproductive rights.
