On Wednesday, Feb. 13, William Jewell College’s Black Student Association (BSA) hosted their third annual Jewell Kitchen – a soul food dinner.
For $5 before the event or $7 at the door, students and other members of the Jewell community were treated to overflowing plates of fried chicken, corn bread, macaroni and cheese, green beans and sweet potatoes and yams. Paired with a cup of Kool-Aid, this meal easily satisfied.
The many attendees of the event espoused their love of the food. It was described as the best meal many had eaten in a while, exactly what some had needed and the best fried chicken one had ever had.
The originally planned date for the event was one week before, Feb. 6, but dangerous weather prompted BSA to postpone it. Despite this delay, the event was popularly attended and has become a favorite night for many Jewell students.
Jewell Kitchen is a BSA event designed to celebrate Black History Month. Learn more about Black History Month events by keeping up with BSA.
