Portraits in Black History

What’s a celebration without food?

Fox 8 News presents Portraits in Black History: The African-American Influence on Food.

Each day during our 5 p.m. newscast we’ll feature a historic person and highlight their contribution to this theme.

To celebrate their life and work, we’ll share a recipe in their honor, developed by a local African-American chef.

We’ll show you the dish on-air and offer the step-by-step instructions online so you can try it yourself.

Inventors, scientists, restauranteurs and even politicians — we have a lot of people to thank for the meals we enjoy today.

Portraits in Black History:  The African-American Influence on Food, all this month on Fox 8 News and FOX8.com.
