“Black Food Geographies: Race, Self-Reliance, and Food Access” with Ashanté Reese

Using Washington, DC, as a launching point, this talk explores how structural racism shapes our national food system and how communities define, critique, and navigate contemporary food access inequities. Ashanté Reese is an assistant professor in the department of geography and environmental sciences at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
