The History of Soul Food Cuisine in the United States

Soul food is the ethnic African-American cuisine traditionally cooked in the Southern United States. The term was invented in the mid-1960s when the Black Power movement was gaining momentum and African Americans tried to emphasize their unique culinary traditions (Avieli & Markowitz, 2018). Besides being a traditional cuisine of the Africans, it carries the terrifying fate of the slaves. It is inspired by their best way to preserve the African heritage despite all their eradication and suffering. This paper aims to discuss the history of soul food and its impact on American cuisine.
With the rise of civil rights and black nationalist movements in the 1960s, many African Americans sought to reaffirm their share of American cultural heritage.

This term may have been first used in 1962 by a civil rights activist and poet Amiri Baraka (Avieli & Markowitz, 2018). Sylvia Woods opened her famous Sylvia's restaurant in Harlem the same year. Today, Woods is known by many as the ``queen of the soul food”. READ MORE…
