Discussion of an annotated bibliography on structural racism in the U.S. food system.

First Tuesday Mixers are an opportunity for graduate students, faculty, visiting scholars, guest speakers, and peers to interact outside of the classroom – to network as well as give and receive support and advice.

Rich Pirog is Director of the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems; Anel Guel recently completed an MS degree in the Community Sustainability Department at MSU. In 2015 they worked together to create an annotated bibliography on structural racism present in the US food system and a companion article in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems and Community Development. Rich and Anel will provide context as to what lead them to develop these publications, and will moderate a discussion as to why it is important
to base a foundation for food systems education at MSU with a study and discussion of structural racism in the food system.
