The Lunch Hour: Juneteenth (12 Noon) says
Please join us for lunch and an informal discussion about the history of Juneteenth and the conflict between the U.S. and Black America.

Juneteenth is a celebration of the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas on June 19 and enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation by the United States government. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the festival. Conflict Kitchen will be serving a menu June 19 and 20 created and cooked by seven Pittsburgh African-American and black culinary artists.

Special guests include:

Cheyanne Bronzell was born and raised in Pittsburgh’s Hill District and is chef / owner of PhatGirlzaCookin LLC. Her dream and goal is to transform her home-based catering business into a food truck which would service the homeless and hungry. Some of her earliest culinary successes were mastering Italian gravy at age eleven and cooking an entire Thanksgiving dinner at sixteen. Ms. Bronzell is a wife, mother, and grandmother and hopes to enter popular television cooking contests such as Hell’s Kitchen and MasterChef to wow Master Gordon Ramsey with her skills.

Malik Hamilton is a father of four. Originally from Wyoming, he and his family recently moved to Pittsburgh where he is a graduate student in the Food Studies program at Chatham University. His course of study focuses on food policy and access, as well as cultural representations of food. Mr. Hamilton has a twenty-year culinary background and, once he has completed his Master’s degree, hopes to continue his educational studies in public policy and sociology.
