"Strongly recommend this volume as essential reading for courses in American Studies, Anthropology, Geography, African and African Diaspora Studies, Feminist Studies, and Food Studies and Systems, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels."--Current Anthropology

"Framed by a clear and well-documented introduction by the editors, the books contains 10 chapters written by scholars in the fields of geography, environmental studies, anthropology, ethnic and women's studies, African and African diaspora studies, and American studies."--CHOICE

"A thought provoking and often mouthwatering discussion of food values that have endured in spite of the discontinuities that have persisted since slavery."--Ethnic and Racial Studies

"This innovative edited volume offers an incisive contribution that destabilizes dominant assumptions about the food justice movement."--Medical Anthropology Quarterly

"Mediating between the thread to Black food culture and a celebration of it, Black Food Matters centers Blackness in a field that has too often framed Black issues through a white-centric lens, offering new ways to think about access, privilege, equity, and justice."--Antipode

"Black Food Matters is here to teach us all how not to just ask the right questions but to stand alongside those who have always done so."--City Society

"Black Food Matters is an excellent read, illustrating the intersection between Black food studies, urban political economy, and equitable development. "--Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development
