Additional Information:

High on the Hog returns for a second season to celebrate the influence, resilience, and innovation of African-American food. Following the award-winning first season that traced the roots of a culinary history born in Africa and shaped by slavery in America, this four-part docu-series now delves into the culinary renaissance that burgeoned in the U.S. following emancipation. The next installment explores the creative renaissance that flourished in the U.S. post-emancipation. Traveling to Louisiana, Chicago, New York City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles, host Stephen Satterfield returns to break bread with chefs, artists, and activists. From Chicken & Waffles, created during the Harlem Renaissance, to the Black Panther Party's Free Breakfast Program in the 1960s, to community gardens that are fighting food apartheid today, the series highlights innovators who harness the power of food to reclaim history, connect generations, and mobilize social justice movements. Adapted from food historian Dr. Jessica B. Harris' book of the same name, High on the Hog season two reveals the moving and surprising untold stories of how Black Americans shaped America's kitchen.
