What you'll learn in this history lesson:

Rice around the world is thought of as Asian. But rice is just as African as it is Asian. Oryza glaberrima was cultivated from wild rice that needed humans when the Sahara was drying. That knowledge fueled the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade where Africans were brought west.

Rice dominated the United States and particularly South Carolina for two hundred years by these African slaves. When Black culture migrated north, Harlem became its capital. A mecca where traditions could be preserved and human rights championed.

Spend an evening with curator and local historian Savona Bailey-McClain at Field Trip. Learn how the culture of rice impacted Black Culture. Enjoy scrumptious rice dishes by celebrity chef JJ Johnson at his new restaurant Field Trip in Harlem.
