MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Nonprofit Social Justice for Us (SJFU) is bringing some cultural food to Marquette.

The nonprofit is partnering with Barrel + Beam to host a Soul Food Sunday this weekend.

SJFU gave TV6 a sneak peek at the food attendees can expect.

Freddy Sims, executive director for SJFU, will also discuss the cultural significance of the food.

He said events like these are important for teaching Black history.

“It’s a part of our history,” Sims said. “I think that as long as we continue to educate ourselves on what was, we can grow into what we need to become.”

NMU’s hospitality program will help provide 15 different menu items.

The event is from 3-7 p.m. at Barrel + Beam.
