To help elevate the voices and stories of Black San Franciscans, we’ll be rerunning those episodes over the next few weeks. We’ll be back with new stories from your neighbors down the road a bit.

Fernay McPherson grew up in the Fillmore of the '80s and '90s, learning to cook from and being inspired by her San Francisco family who had various Texas and Southern roots.

In this podcast, Fernay, who owns and operates Millie Bell's Soul Movement in Emeryville, talks about her childhood and the community she misses (she still lives in the Fillmore). Fernay is a graduate of La Cocina, "a nonprofit working to solve problems of equity in business ownership for women, immigrants and people of color."

We recorded this podcast at Public Market Emeryville in February 2019.
