The Chitlin' Circuit provides established and emerging performing artists as well as chefs and caterers who specialize in southern cuisine a platform to showcase their talents. This event harkens back to a time and places during the Jim Crow Era when African Americans in the South owned and operated establishments that also hosted mostly black musicians sometimes to diverse audiences. Includes a presentation at 7pm by scholar Earl Ijames with a chance to ask questions, followed by an 8pm performance.
