Movers & Thinkers: How Food Can Lead To Conversations About Race, Religion, History

May 13, 2016

When it comes to understanding another culture or even another time in history, Jennifer Justus believes in the power of food.

Justus is a food writer and the author of "Nashville Eats," a cookbook that doubles — at times — as a history book about Nashville. She talked to WPLN's Emily Siner in our live series Movers & Thinkers about how cuisine can cross cultural boundaries.

This audio is an excerpt from the latest episode of our Movers & Thinkers podcast. Hear more of the conversation with Jennifer and two other Nashvillians working to preserve history by downloading our podcast on our website, on iTunes, or on Google Play.
