The Soul Food Cooking Contest will be held at the Hernando Public Library. It is returning after it first began almost 30 years ago. The program will be celebrating Black History Month, calling attention to traditional soul dishes – and maybe some new takes on old favorites. All are welcome to enter the contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best dishes.

Admission to the event is free! Following the judging, samplings will be free, as long as they last.

Dr. Brinda Willis, author of “Why We Call It Soul Food,” will speak on the emotional and physical aspects of what came to be regarded as the signature cuisine of the black community of the South.

February 17th: Katt Williams

Date: Saturday, February 17th

Time: 8:00 p.m.

Location: Landers Center // 4560 Venture Dr. • Southaven, MS 38671

Price: $54-$127


Legendary stand-up comedian, world-renowned actor, rapper and vanguard in an elite category of professionally-touring comics, KATT WILLIAMS has developed a career seeded with thousands of stage shows in sold-out arenas, a laundry list of starring roles on the small screen and memorable performances in major box office hits. As he approaches his 20th anniversary in the business, the veteran entertainer known for his insightful, often polarizing material gears up to embark on his next tour, Conspiracy Theory, with a renewed sense of self, yet the exact same mode of operation that turned the once emancipated teenager into a household name— comedy on his own terms.

A Katt Williams show is more than a guaranteed belly laugh. As one of this generation’s rare urban public officials, Williams guarantees his audience an experience that will encourage further conversation after his curtain closes—it’s an articulate, sharp dialogue that surfaces with names like Trump, Cosby and NASA, but is rooted in evergreen conversations like politics, race relations and police brutality— all a mere (and mirror) reflection of the American political landscape.
