Walmart has hand-selected nine celebrated chefs nationally to kick off the 2nd year of its Rediscovering America program. The purpose of the program is to highlight the importance of making fresh, quality produce available to everyone while spotlighting the importance of supporting farmers and responsibly sourcing produce, which Walmart does in 42 states with thousands of farms and farmers.
Locally, Chef Sean Mendes has added a one-of-a-kind dish to his menu inspired by the fresh, quality produce found at the local Walmart stores, and this year, Walmart is bringing the program to Charleston.
Yep. You read that right. From now to October 9, Charleston residents can get a special taste of Walmart’s produce in Chef Mendes’s dish—Farmer’s Cassarole—at Gillie’s Seafood.
The retailer is also awarding ten, $10,000 scholarships to female chefs and chefs of color across the country through the James Beard Foundation.

In conjunction with his exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, “Colin Quashie: Linked,” the artist will join Kali Holloway of the Make It Right Project to discuss his work and how it relates to current efforts to remove Confederate monuments around the country.
In his latest series, called Linked, Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. In Gabriel, Quashie tweaks an image of Louie Armstrong, updating his signature trumpet with a set of slave shackles. Similarly, in Rose Colored, he creates an image of Harriet Tubman donning a pair of rose-colored glasses, referencing the abolitionist’s view of slaveholders, for whom she still held a level of empathy. With these works, Quashie teases out underlying stereotypes, exposing them for all to see more plainly.FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:http://halsey.cofc.edu/exhibitions/
About the Make It Right Project
Directed by Kali Holloway, the Make It Right (MIR) Project is a multimedia campaign dedicated to righting social justice wrongs. The goal of MIR isn’t merely to “raise awareness” or “spark a national dialogue,” but to use multiple media formats to move the needle and create visible, measurable change. The inaugural project is focused on the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials, which are tangible eulogies to heroes of a treasonous anti-American campaign and a reflection of U.S. investment in white power and supremacy.
