Thank you for visiting The Soul of DFW! We miss you! We are currently on hiatus due to the pandemic, but will be returning shortly!
In the meantime be sure to follow us and be on the look out for our new schedule!
Soul of DFW’s mission is to educate the community on the significance of Black culture through foodways and local history.
Founded by Deah Berry Mitchell and co-founded by Dalila Thomas Brent, The tour allows guests to visit historical landmarks and learn about the contributions of Dallas, Forth Worth (and select cities) via foodways and history.
In addition, there are designated stops at Black-owned restaurants for tastings of a selected menu item.
Attendees are able to take in the sites stress-free from the comfort of a chauffeured, air-conditioned bus.
Our exclusive tours are the perfect way to engage ALL employees in diversity appreciation OR educate students and faculty in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
Deah Berry Mitchell is a corporate executive by day and freelance writer and culinary event producer by night residing in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas.
A double graduate of Southern Methodist University, she enjoys traveling and immersing herself into other cultures. While vacationing in 2017 Berry-Mitchell had the idea to produce a bus tour that would combine her two passions: foodways and local cultural history. Swiftly upon returning she suggested to her friend and public relations manager, Dalila Thomas, that they partner together to produce this new concept.
In February 2018 they officially launched and have been producing the sold-out tours consistently since then. The pair have been featured in several media outlets such as, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, WFAA, Guidelive and numerous others.
They are currently planning to expand into other test markets in the immediate future. Pick up a copy of Berry-Mitchell’s book published in early 2019, “Cornbread & Collard Greens: How West African Cuisine and Slavery Influenced Soul Food”!
I'm the creator of Starving on a Budget. I've been in love with food as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until the past year that I realized just how much money I spend eating out! But because I love it so, it's kind of hard to let it go. So I began seeking out places that weren't as heavy on my wallet, as well as easy home recipes.
So now it's only right to share them with you!
