Description

Black Family Reunion Cookbook: Recipes and Food Memories, National Council of Negro Women, 1991:  Cookbook that comes out of the Black Family Reunion Celebrations, organized by the National Council of Negro Women and held in seven cities across the United States every summer.   Details personal reminiscences–and recipes–from celebrities such as Natalie Cole, Wilma Rudolph, Patti LaBelle, and Spelman College President Johnetta Cole.  This cookbook just drips in wonderfully detailed American history.  It opens with a poem, Black Family Reunion Pledge, written expressly for the National Council of Negro Women Black Family Reunion Celebration on May 14, 1986, by Dr. Maya Angelou.  There’s a chapter on African-American heritage with holiday menus, a food glossary, and a list of celebrations with definitions.  AND it includes Mary McCleod Bethune’s–the founder of the NCNW–very own recipe for Sweet Potato Pie.  (And I find it wonderful that the recipe makes three pies.  Of course you make three pies.  It’s a family reunion!)

This first edition, first printing cookbook was published by Tradery House, The Wimmer Companies, Memphis, Tennessee. Hard cover book with plastic comb binding. 212 pages.  Book is in as-if-new condition.  Binding is perfect. Pages are clean and clear. (It was published as a hard cover book with traditional binding and dust jacket by Fireside, Simon & Schuster Inc., New York, in 1993.)
