Guest edited by writer and oral historian Audrey Petty, the Summer 2022 issue of Gravy tells stories of the Great Migration and its culinary legacies. Articles and essays explore how Southerners have both maintained and adapted their foodways at home and in restaurants when they leave the South to make homes in new places. The pieces in this issue are set primarily in the Midwest: Cleveland to Chicago, Kankakee to Kalamazoo. They span four generations--roughly a century--of movement, placemaking, tradition-bearing, and evolution.Janice Harrington recalls a lifetime of foraging in the Deep South and the Midwest. Rosalind Bentley connects with a Hmong farmer over collard greens in Minneapolis. From Chicago, Charla L. Draper recalls her years directing the Ebony magazine test kitchen, and Lolly Bowean reports on the city's Black tacos. Kidiocus Carroll meditates on his family's dressing recipe, which has evolved over four generations and many geographic changes. Mark V. Reynolds conjures the vibrant Black-owned restaurants and nightclubs of Cleveland in the mid-twentieth century.In This Issue: SFA MVP (Most Visited Places)
