About this title

Synopsis:

“Edible Activism” demonstrates food’s ability to act as a means for individual expression, community building, and rebellion by examining the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, the Back-to-the-Land and Youth movements, and the Ecology Movement. The 1960s and 1970s was a time of great social change in American history. Countercultural groups of this era, who opposed the confining structures, ideologies, rituals, and leadership of the wider “straight” society, provide the most pertinent examples of food as a political tool and symbol.
