7th Annual African American Dinner

Special Dinner #117

The Roadhouse welcomes author Audrey Petty, born and raised in Chicago and currently a Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Audrey will share her father’s stories about his Northern migrations, his coming of age as a cook-busboy-migrant worker and will read her own poetry of the African American community. Audrey and Chef Alex will help tell the stories through a traditional and full-flavored meal prepared by Chef Alex.
