In the time WW1, a wild new popular culture emerged in the United States. In part, it was a hedonistic and extravagant reaction to the hardship and austerity experienced during the war. Some have referred to it as the Roaring Twenties, while others have called it the Jazz Age. When one speaks of the Jazz Age, what comes to mind is a decade of partying, of the Charleston and jazz bands, of female flappers and loose morals, of bathtub gin and speakeasies, all combined and intertwined into a celebration of American technology and ingenuity that, over the course of a decade, provided average U.S. families the materialistic conveniences of automobiles and modern appliances. A truly remarkable chapter of American history, Jazz was the soundtrack to it and came to embody the attitude of the burgeoning counterculture.

A great deal of praise has been heaped on the Native American museum’s cafeteria for its expansive menu offering samples of various Native American dishes, and it in itself has been a big attraction for visitors. Although many people consume food that they tend to think hails from African American heritage, most of those dishes are mainstream versions as opposed to authentic flavors. This is why it is necessary that the NMAAHC have a high-quality, authentic soul food cafeteria, that serves up dishes like oxtails, okra and hushpuppies. To experience authentic cooking is to temporarily step into another culture, by immersing oneself in a combination of unfamiliar flavors and produce which is a byproduct of historical circumstances. Furthermore, an introduction to African American food is something that can transition outside the NMAAHC, and potentially provide a lasting incentive to visit traditionally African American cities and neighborhoods.
