Open Source RVA presents:

A SOURCE FOR SORE EARS! On Friday’s Open Source RVA, heard at noon on WRIR 97.3 FM, we talk with Jasmine Leeward of the advocacy group, Richmond For All. She made national headlines this past week when she and the group disrupted an local appearance by presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg. Leeward explains about why she stands against Bloomberg, and also speaks about Richmond For All’s successful fight against Mayor Levar Stoney’s Navy Hill project. We also welcome historian and former chef Kelley Deetz, the author of ‘Bound to the Fire: How Virginia’s Enslaved Cooks Helped Invent American Cuisine.” She helps us trace the roots of our favorite comfort foods to 18th and 19th century slave kitchens, and will deliver a banner lecture on her book at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture on Feb. 27. We also feature another splashy episode of Curtain Call, produced by the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle. This week, reviewers Rich Griset, Julinda Lewis and Jerry Williams discuss “Fences”  (Virginia Repertory Theatre), “The Cake” (Richmond Triangle Players) and  “Daddy Long Legs” (Swift Creek Mill Theatre). BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! RVA Dirt’s Melissa Vaughn also delivers a “Navy Hill Eulogy” on the Quick & Dirty Council Roundup. TOO MUCH DANGER? The Source will be with you! Noon on WRIR and
