Look back to an SFA film from last summer, Everybody is Welcome. It profiles Pedro Leyva of Mundo Latino Taco Shop in Oxford, Mississippi.
Through her cooking, much like immigrant entrepreneurs and food workers across the country, Rasita has been able to bring a little bit of Thailand to Mississippi.
I sought out integrated spaces in Oxford for my project. Time and again one name kept popping up: the Taco Shop.
SFA launched an annual week-long Documentary Video workshop in Oxford, Mississippi, taught by Pihakis Foodways Filmmaker Ava Lowrey.
Rebecca Lauck Cleary produced her film, Food for Thought, for her Documenting Southern Foodways course with Pihakis Film Fellow Ava Lowrey.
Friday March 31 at 10:30 a.m., Toni Tipton-Martin speaks about her book, The Jemima Code, at Oxford Conference for the Book.
January 25, watch SFA films based in Mississippi, followed by discussion with John T Edge, Joe York, Ron Shapiro, and Alan Arrivee.
SFA extends sincere thanks to City of Oxford Recycling and Sustainable Oxford for their assistance at our 19th Southern Foodways Symposium.
