Two years ago, a Durham restaurant, Backyard Barbecue, gained national attention for being featured in “Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue” by Adrian Miller.

Miller believes that the story of the American tradition of barbecue cannot be told without attention to Back-owned barbecue establishments.

D.G. Martin, a retired lawyer, served as the UNC System’s vice president for public affairs and hosted PBS-NC’s “North Carolina Bookwatch.”
