Lecture: Fast Food Civil Rights

Farmers markets occupy empty city lots. Nutritionists visit schools to teach children the difference between mustard greens and kale. A food revolution is clearly upon us. Yet, while health warriors figh an army of trans fats, value meals, and splashy advertisements, few have considered how fast food planted its flag so firmly into the racially segregated battlefields of this conflict. Drawing upon Professor Chatelain's research on race and fast food, this class will explore the precise moment in which the fast food industry transformed from a suburban oasis for families to a ubiquitous presence on the busiest corners of urban America.
