NOTES: William C. Snowden, Founder of the Juror Project works as a staff attorney at the Orleans Public Defenders and has been there since 2013. As a felony trial attorney, William witnesses the discriminatory practices removing jurors from the jury panel. In response to these practices, William created The Juror Project—an initiative aiming to increase the diversity of jury panels while changing and challenging people’s perspective of jury duty. The Juror Project engages the community through informative meetings and group discussions. William presents at high schools, colleges, churches, neighborhood associations and any other community gatherings to discuss the importance of jury service, the discriminatory practices of some prosecutors, as well as what members can do to actually get on a jury.

The free event, presented by Bayview Senior Services, will feature live music, vendor booths, a Kid’s zone, and a dazzling variety of food venues. Some of the offerings include fried chicken, catfish, oxtails, ribs, links, black-eyed peas, red beans and rice, greens, yams, mac & cheese, cornbread, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, pound cake and other soulful delights–all of which will be sure to rival mama and grandmas’ down-home cooking. Black Cuisine will also give soul food novices and chefs an opportunity to share their culinary talents by entering the Soul Food Cooking contest with winners receiving cash prizes.
