ABOUT THE PROJECT

Jubilee is a deep-fried, Gulf South food play that uses the familiarity of a family feast to stage a purposefully uncomfortable conversation about race in the American South. Traversing the lineage of one white Alabama family, Jubilee carves up the Southern cookbook for clues to our collective history and explores themes of Southerness, personal ancestry, and systemic white supremacy.
