As we head into the festivities of the holiday season, we talk about the good, the bad,           and the ugly of soul food.  We’re joined by Frederick Douglass Opie, author of Hog and Hominy: Soul Food from Africa to America.  Later in the show, as the #BlackLivesMatter protests continue, we pause to consider what’s next for the movement and what after           the die-ins, the shut-downs, and the walk-outs.
