A Library and a Legacy

At this fall’s 16th Southern Foodways Symposium on Women at Work, mother and daughter Alice Randall and Caroline Randall Williams spoke of the cookbook collection left to them by Joan Bontemps Williams, Caroline’s paternal grandmother. It is a powerful—and humorous—story of family, food, civil rights, and identity formation.

Stay tuned for more symposium videos in the coming days!
