Remote Rap Sessions – Lena Richard: America’s Unknown Celebrity Chef

Wednesday, December 16, 2020 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

This session is being rescheduled for January, exact date TBD. More information coming soon.

The selection for the seventh session of TRLN’s Remote Rap Sessions will be about the Sidedoor podcast episode Lena Richard: America’s Unknown Celebrity Chef (32 minutes).

When Lena Richard cooked her first chicken on television, she beat Julia Child to the screen by over a decade. At a time when most African American women cooks worked behind swinging kitchen doors, Richard claimed her place as a culinary authority, broadcasting in the living rooms of New Orleans’s elite white families. She was an entrepreneur, educator, author, and an icon—and her legacy lives on in her recipes.

The session will be held via Zoom. More information about facilitators and registration will be added to this event page soon. Please reach out to if you have any questions. We hope you can join us!
