In this episode Rashad and I talk about how systemic racism once again shows up in the food industry. From restaurant profits being cut by greedy food distributors, to not being approved for funding, and even having to face a lack of kitchen rental opportunities, Rashad tells us about the trials he’s faced as a Black chef and his determination to empower Black chefs. An economy is only as strong as its food industry, and with Black people owning little to none in this industry, Rashad seeks to change that. Tune in to learn how he’s making waves for Black chefs, so we can gain power in the Black economy.
