Let them Eat KaleCelebrity activist, dancer, author Africa Engo is an inspiration on many levels.  She used to weigh 250 lbs.  Not any longer.  After vowing in 2007 to lose 100 lbs. she did that and more.  After her successful weight loss effort she ran from New York to Chicago and completed two other ultra-marathons on three continents to raise AIDS awareness.  The NYU grad organized the New York AIDs film festival for 8 years and is the subject of an MTV documentary you can view here--

As a vegan chef, she helps people take charge of their lives and reclaim their physical health.  Africa will join us in the Hy-Vee Club Room to talk food, politics, and prepare two dishes from her book, "Let Them Eat Kale!"

You can read more about her at the following link-, but meeting Africa in person is an entirely different experience.  Don't miss her!
