The dinner (catfish, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, greens, black eyed peas, cornbread, and peach cobbler or sweet potato pie) is cooked in an old-fashioned southern way in the African tradition known as “Soul Food.” Members of the BSU created the dinner eight years ago as a way to celebrate black culture and Black History Month.

Cost is $6/general public; $5/UWRF student with id. Tickets are available at the door. Carryout is available for an additional $1 and is available from 3:45 - 4:30 p.m.

Following dinner, all are invited to North Hall auditorium at 7:30 p.m. to watch a performance by Voices of Africa. The world-renowned woman’s a cappella group will perform traditional African music using native percussion. Free admission.
