About This Quiz

Soul food is a type of American cuisine that originated in the south. This food has ties to the slave communities in the southeastern states of the country and got its name during the '60s when the likes of Malcolm X walked this earth. It was primarily eaten by the black community, but has since transcended race and is eaten throughout the nation.
