Soul Food: An Antidote For Partisan Politics?

Henry's Soul Cafe
The following is a prerecorded radio interview I did on Americana a BBC Radio show with host Matt Frei.  (The show included interviews with Newt Gingrich and Richard Clarke).

Soul Food: An Antidote

Professor Fredrick Opie is an expert on Soul Food, the traditional comfort foods of the African American community. Even the most fried nerves seem to be calmed by the classic fried chicken, grits, sweet potato pie and macaroni and cheese. Americana visits Henry’s Soul Food Café in Washington D.C. to find out how Soul Food continues to soothe Americans of all backgrounds.
