The Black Lunch Table is an oral history archiving project focused on the lives and works of Black artists in communities across the country.

One of the cofounders: artist Heather Hart, whose “Oracle of Connection” installation is on display in the courtyard of Stove Works here in Chattanooga.

On Friday and Saturday, Stove Works will host a series of programs by Black Lunch Table.

  • On Friday, a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at 5 PM.
  • On Saturday, two roundtables - one at 11 AM for artists and another at 1 PM for community members - along with a photo booth starting at 12 PM.

Josiah Golson is programs director at Stove Works. Eola Dance is executive director of Black Lunch Table - and Aja Scarlato is its lead archives assistant.
