The fifth event of the "Story of Us" series is titled

The "Soul Food" tradition can be traced back to Southern plantations and slavery.  Our Soul Food Dinner celebrates that tradition of culinary creativity that is presented in what's known as "good ol' down home cooking!"  Pastor Walter Jordan, Senior Pastor of Oasis of Love Church, will share how the label "soul food" came about and how this tradition really is part of our shared American legacy. 
North Central State's Cheryl Carter will engage us with her moving readings of famous Black literature; and local vocalist, Kristin Scott, will thrill us with her musical talent to complete an evening of good company, good food, and great entertainment!

Ticket prices: $5 for students of Ohio State Mansfield and NC State College
