S05 E34: The Hidden Black History Of Ice Cream w/ The Food Griot Tanya Hopkins

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! And no…we did not know the U.S. would be having a heat wave this week! Did you know there is a hidden Black history of ice cream? Well, It’s summertime and Tonya Hopkins (The Food Griot) is back with an exciting show about the erased history behind that delectable treat.

James Hemings, Alfred Cralle & Augustus Jackson: these were a few of the African American names that history has omitted from the story of ice cream in the U.S.

We love it when an episode drops unknown history – especially when it pertains to black history – and Tonya dropped some jaw-dropping golden nuggets on this show.

You won’t want to miss this!
