The History of American Fast Food
From the early days of the White Castle slider to the Chipotle burrito, Americans adore fast food. Fast food is about more than just a quick bite; fast food history helps us understand the transformations in the way we eat, work, and live. In this presentation, historian Marcia Chatelain, author of Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America, will take you through more than a century of business innovation, changing palates, and hours of commercials. Fast food provides a lens for understanding what we value and how we savor it. Join in the conversation if you have an appetite for learning more about your favorite roadside stops, jingles, and French fries.
