276: Oscar Johnson – Jimmy Pearl’s

It’s that time of the year. The weather is getting cooler and the holiday season is in full swing. Family and friends are gathering from far and wide to celebrate with each other. But what really brings people together around the holidays? We know you’ll be excited about today’s show if your answer is the food. Food can bring us together around the holidays and special occasions, but it can also do so much more. Food can hold the memory of a culture. The right meal can tell the story of a nation.

Our guest today knows the power food has to tell stories and keep cultures alive. Today we are joined by Oscar Johnson, the owner of Jimmy Pearl’s restaurant. Jimmy Pearls prides itself on making sure Afro-Southern food is celebrated, respected, and maintained.
