February’s comforting meal will consist of Ghanaian Ground Nut Soup with chicken and peanuts by chef Rahina. Rahina immigrated from Wa, Ghana in her late 20’s. She joined Sanctuary Kitchen because of her love for cooking. “I think cooking together with other people is a fun way to learn about immigrants in the community and understand their cultures. I am also excited to share my culture and teach something I am good at and proud of.”

January 16th at 5:30pm: “People Get Ready!” featuring Angela Davis
A celebrated activist, educator, and author, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world through her activism and scholarship over many decades. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. Over her illustrious teaching career, Professor Davis has taught at a range of schools, including San Francisco State University, Mills College, UC Berkeley and Stanford University. Most recently, she spent fifteen years at the University of California Santa Cruz where she is now Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness – an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program – and of Feminist Studies.

January 23rd at 5:30pm: “Faith in the People” featuring Nikki Giovanni
Nikki Giovanni is a world-renowned poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator. Over the past 30 years, her outspokenness in her writing and in lectures has garnered attention from around the globe. One of the most widely read American poets, she prides herself on being “a Black American, a daughter, a mother, a professor of English.” Determined and committed to the fight for civil rights and equality, Giovanni remains a strong voice of the Black community and dedicated to presenting the truth as she sees it. Her focus is on the individual, specifically, on the power one has to make a difference in oneself, and thus, in the lives of others.
Over her illustrious career, Giovanni has penned more than 30 books for both adults and children, and she has earned numerous honors and awards for her work. She was the first recipient of the Rosa L. Parks Woman of Courage Award, and she has also been awarded the Langston Hughes Medal for poetry.
