Community Pie Social at McColl Center

September 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Community Pie Social

Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.

McColl Center for Art + Innovation
721 N Tryon St.
Charlotte, NC 28202

Free with RSVP

McColl Center’s Community Pie Social is a time for neighborly fellowship and dialogue about topical issues. Bring a fresh-baked sweet or savory pie to share with others, and gather to talk about who we are as individuals and where we are as a city and a nation.

New Orleans–based chef and writer Tunde Wey joins exhibiting artist Rodrigo Valenzuela to facilitate a community conversation about migration and anti-immigration sentiments.

For the past two years, Wey has traveled the United States, discussing the sociopolitical climate and using the food of his West African childhood to spur conversations. Learn more by visiting Wey’s website and reading his widely circulated article in Oxford American, “Who Owns Southern Food?”
