A meal filled with soul

The Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center invites the community to join them for a free Soul Food Dinner from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, at the center as it kicks off the 19th Annual Black Culture Awareness Week.

Black Culture Awareness Week originated in 1992 when then-Columbia Mayor Mary Anne McCollum issued a proclamation designating the third week in November as Black Culture Awareness Week. The weeklong events — from Nov. 6 to Nov. 11 — are designed to provide faculty, staff, students and community residents of Columbia insight into Black culture and history.
