Video: Adrian Miller on Soul Food and Red Drink

“‘What? Red Kool-Aid was invented by a white dude living in Nebraska in the 1920s?‘”

Adrian Miller, author of Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time, reads an excerpt from the book. This selection opens a chapter called, “What’s Sweet, Red, and Drunk from a Jelly Jar? Hint: Liquid Soul!” The video was recorded by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance at the annual meeting held in September 2013. Thanks, SIBA, for a great, juicy (sorry, couldn’t resist) snippet of Soul Food!
