Here’s the lineup:

Feb. 13: Chef Cynthia Nevels of Soulgood begins the series on Zoom and the library’s Facebook page. In 2012, Nevels launched Soulgood, a food truck and now restaurant. She was inspired to cook plant-based food for her youngest son, Tyler. He passed away from cystic fibrosis in 2015. Her mission “is to save the planet, animals and people — one plate at a time.” 

Feb. 20: Tisha Crear of Recipe Oak Cliff offers a pre-recorded cooking video followed by a live Q&A. Recipe, located in south Oak Cliff, opened in 2017 and is dedicated to addressing food insecurity issues in the neighborhood. It’s known for its juices and wellness shots. 

Feb. 27: Brandon Waller of Bam’s Vegan finishes up the series with a live cooking demonstration and Q&A. Bam’s is known for its smoothies and wraps (and other yummy vegan foods). The restaurant got its start in 2018 at the Dallas Farmers Market. Bam’s Vegan is currently located at 2301 N O’Connor Road in Irving. 

Registration is free and open for all events.

The library is also hosting other Black History Month events, including B.Y.O.B Chat: Black Excellence and Dallas 101: Lake Highlands and Hamilton Park.
