Letisha Brown

Grad Associate | As a PhD Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin (Sociology), I fell in love with the study of food and social relationships, particularly with respect to the ways in which they intersect with race and gender. Food for Black Thought offered me the opportunity to put my research into action, and so I jumped at the chance! I get to use my skills as a researcher and interviewer, while learning new things every single day, and pushing myself in ways that will make me a better scholar. I came to Food for Black Thought to learn and to grow, and that is what I’ve been privileged to do.
