Pot Liquor – a cultural storytelling event – added its essence to the legendary Slave Haven Museum in Uptown Memphis last Sunday (May 28th).

A celebration of foods from African ancestors incorporated elements of culture, cuisine, education, entertainment, and community engagement. 

Pot Liquor-goers were treated to live demonstrations and savored complimentary pot liquor and candied yam cornbread made from the harvest of Black Seeds Urban Farms. There were culinary offerings from Charlotte & Pickens and cultural exhibits, with the musical backdrop provided by DJ Juice.

The food was curated by Camille James and Charlotte & Pickens.

Family and friends – some spread out on blankets they brought for the outing – enjoyed the authentic celebration of African culinary heritage.
