HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The annual Soul Food Feast, sponsored by the Marshall University Center for African American Students’ Programs, will take place on MU’s Huntington campus Sunday, Feb. 6.


The event starts at 2 p.m. in the John Marshall Dining Room on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center. Maurice Cooley, director of the Center for African American Students’ Programs, said the annual celebration “is a time to fellowship with friends, family, and others from throughout the community.”

“It is a joyful time to celebrate the spirit of love, while enjoying  the company  and conversation with family, friends, faculty, university students and others from throughout the community, enhanced by some of the most appetizing and traditional African-American dishes,” Cooley said.

The soulful buffet will include chitterlings (chittlins), crispy fried chicken, barbeque ribs, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, candied yams, potato salad, beverages and an assortment of tasty desserts. The cost is $6 for students and $12 for adults and tickets will be available at the door or in advance in the Center for African American Students’ Programs (Room 1W25 in the Memorial Student Center, adjacent to the Marshall Bookstore).
