Soul Plates invites the community to go deeper into the diverse flavors and traditions and that define us as cultures, communities and individuals by reflecting on soul food and our connection to food as a form of resistance, an act of joy, an expression of love, and deep down, a part of who we are. Soul Plates is generously supported by ArtsWave, Kroger, the African American Chamer, and the Cincinnati Development Fund.

Each Wednesday in February, join Soul Plates for a shared meal and intimate conversation as we pass the culture through smell, taste, sound & storytelling.

Each Soul Plate is unique to the culture & memories of our dinner hosts. Your Soul Plate will include a prepared dish, a paired beverage (non-alcoholic), a curated dinner playlist, the evening’s table topics + few surprises to help transport you into each dinner host’s kitchen and memories. Dishes may include some light assembly and re-warming.
