Conversations on Cultural Stewardship:
African American Foodways, Work and Oral History

Featuring the Elmira Center for Cultural Advancement
Thursday, October 6, 2022

111 Cedar Street
Corning, NY 14830

Join us for a conversation about how to identify, protect, and enhance our important traditions, ways of life, cherished places, and vital relationships with each other and the wider world. Culture creates and strengthens communities. Understanding the complexity and power of culture gives communities agency. The concept of Cultural Stewardship teaches us to understand our personal cultural identity as well as that of our families, schools, neighborhoods, and communities. This conversation series with local cultural stewards from our African American, Native American, and Muslim American communities encourages us to observe, listen, document, and work closely with individuals and communities that make up our region’s cultural ecosystem.

These lectures are free and open to the public.
