Quite amazing; I like to think I track these issues, but a number of these interesting initiatives were new to me. It's been quite a year. Thanks!

"Nat Fuller’s legacy as a chef and restaurateur long before emancipation is certainly noteworthy, but his reconciliation dinner, hosted just after word of emancipation reached Charleston, is what makes him a legend.

As a way to bring the Charleston community together chef Fuller held a dinner for 80 guest where he pulled out all the stops and facilitated a sort of healing. The dinner was irrespective of race and station and was a feast meant to coax the city into a collective breath after years of war and strife."


I found Nat Fuller's Feast: The Life and Legacy of an Enslaved Cook in Charleston in a quick duckduckgo search.
