The SFA oral history program documents life stories from the American South. Collecting these stories, we honor the people whose labor defines the region.
The Career Servers Oral History Project surveys men and women who built careers waiting tables in New Orleans, Louisiana; Charleston, South Carolina; and Atlanta, Georgia.
This oral history collection highlights the life and labor of some of the key chefs, waiters, and bartenders who have worked (or still work) at Highlands Bar & Grill.
Twenty years ago, in 1999, author and activist John Egerton convened a two-day meeting of 50 people who lent their names to a non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and celebration of the diverse food cultures of the American South. In celebration of this anniversary, SFA has commissioned a series of Founders shorts highlighting those founding members and the importance of Southern Foodways. Founding member Nathalie Dupree reflects on previous efforts to organize Southern food groups, and why SFA is different.
Film produced by Victoria De Leone for the Southern Foodways Alliance.
