Join us for a webinar with Rod Westmaas, CPCE Emeritus!

This presentation will endeavor to show the evolution from Enslavement to Empowerment. As far back as 1820 African Americans were viewed as the founders of catering in the United States. Through hard work, determination and a tireless zeal they created their own culinary identity. These men and women of color accumulated great wealth while building communities and aiding in the freedom of enslaved Africans by contributing cash and resources to the underground railroad and abolitionists, in addition to setting an industry standard that remains today. The ever growing hospitality industry has often marginalized and downplayed the impact and importance the African American community plays.
