20 Years, 20 Founders: Nathalie Dupree

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.
