James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Chef @VirginiaWillis comes to the BCAE for a fascinating exploration of the tangled and compelling web of race, politics, and social history that are served up alongside biscuits and gravy in the American South.
Join Virginia and Chef @DouglassWilliams of @MIDABoston as they talk about everything from collard greens, to arepas, to stories that reveal the rich and diverse roots of the cuisine of the global South. @AngieMosier 's stunning photographs are the final ingredient in this evening that will transport you from Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains to the fields and farms of Tennessee.
Secrets of the Southern Table by Virginia Willis will be available for purchase at this event. A taste of some of the recipes featured in the new cookbook will be served during a reception and book-signing immediately following the talk.
Spike the gypsy is a man for all seasons, that is, except for August Bank holiday weekends. He arrives from Kingston, Jamaica at the beginning of the 1950s and lives in a slum tenement owned by the infamous landlord Peter Rachman at St Stephens Gardens in Ladbroke Grove. The gypsy knows people from all over London: musicians from jazz clubs, high class society women..

If you staffed an 18th century tollbooth you would live on the premises and it would look a bit like this. If you staff an M6 tollbooth in 2018, your home probably doesn't look much like this #socialhistory

Whores or mothers? Harlots or sisters? Humanising and remembering those on the periphery of history at Crossbones, the final resting place of more than 15,000 medieval prostitutes. Working women, do not feel alone, history is YOUR story, not told from a throne. #crossbones#alternativelondon#socialhistory
I love this photograph of this wedding party- aside from the clothes, the pose and set up is no different to countless wedding photos today. I particularly like the young ladies dress. Unfortunately unknown, it was taken in Orford in Suffolk #meettheancestors
Remembering the lives of people who were patients in a Victorian lunatic asylum.
Thankfully asylums of this type no longer exist, however history does remain of those who sadly were committed to these places.
Mental health shouldn't be shut away like in the olden days, where it was frowned upon or ignored. Thankfully in today's society there is a lot more help and understanding of the different conditions that exist, depending on the diagnosis.
There are many Victorian asylums in British history that have been banished to the history books, but the people who were committed to these places are also forgotten. Mendip Hospital Cemetary have volunteers who care for the cemetery where former patients were buried and those volunteers are bringing the history of the patients back with the records that still remain.
if you have history like this in your area, why not volunteer and offer your services? Friends of Mendip Hospital Cemetary and many more around the UK need the help and support to keep these places of history alive for future generations.
Mental health isn't something to be embarrassed or ashamed of, from the richest to the poorest, it affects us all.
