Written by Hilton Als



The impact of the late Southern chef Edna Lewis on American cuisineโ€”and generations of peopleโ€”cannot be overstated. Inspired by Hilton Als' childhood recollections of admiring Lewis from afar during her years in New York City, Edna Lewis is a meditative love letter to her by a celebrated writer. Featuring the sensational Helga Davis as "Edna" ruminating on her storied life and acclaimed performer Justin Hicks as a young Hilton, this intimate work-in-progress is set against pivotal moments in American history.
