A Look At Black Food Culture On Chicago’s South Side

Chicago is known for its restaurant scene. But often, the focus is on restaurants with celebrity chefs or eateries in the Loop.

The Chicago Tribune Food & Dining team is trying to change that. They’re focusing on the food scene on the city’s South Side for the month of June — specifically food culture and traditions of the Black community.

Morning Shift talks to Sade Carpenter, deputy editor of food and dining at the Tribune, about how they’re approaching food coverage this month.
