Annual Carter G. Woodson Soul Food Feast returns Feb. 4

The Marshall University Center for African American Students has announced plans for the traditional Carter G. Woodson Annual Soul Food Feast to be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 4, in the Memorial Student Center’s John Marshall Dining Room, overlooking the university’s Huntington campus.

This annual celebration is a time of fellowship with friends, family and others from throughout the community, said Maurice Cooley, Marshall’s associate vice president for intercultural affairs.

“It is a joyful time to celebrate in the spirit of love while enjoying  the company  and conversation with family, friends, and others from throughout our community. Plan your appetite to indulge the best of ‘soul food’ dishes,” Cooley said.

The soulful buffet will include traditional African American dishes of chitterlings, crispy fried chicken, barbequed ribs, mac and cheese, collard greens, candied yams, potato salad, beverages and an assortment of tasty desserts.

Tickets are $7.00 for students and $15 for adults. Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased in advance from the Office of Intercultural Affairs to avoid long lines. For additional information, contact the Office of Intercultural Affairs at 304-696-4677.
