Kuhl teaches a course on the “Great Migration,” the movement of African Americans from the segregated south to the north during the Jim Crow Era. The class spends 2 weeks on each of the USP Signature Questions and takes a look at the sustainability question. The class reads a portion of Will Allen’s memoir and goes on a field trip to Milwaukee to visit Growing Power, the Fondy Food Market, and Alice’s Garden. An Environmental Studies faculty visits the class beforehand to explain sustainability, and comes with the class on the field trip to give additional context. The focus is how food changes with migration.
