In 2015, Linda Harrison, Executive Director of the Museum of the African Diaspora, appointed Bryant the inaugural Chef-in-Residence. On November 15, 2015 he hosted Black Women, Food, and Power – a panel discussion with cookbook authors, scholars, and activists from around the country; on December 8 he curated a multi-course Diaspora Dinner in the lobby of the museum; and he is partnering with schools in San Francisco and Oakland to activate young people around food justice issues.  Many more exciting programs followed, including  Food From Across Africa with The Groundnut; A Celebration of Food Justice Activism from the 1960s to Now; and the second Diaspora Dinner with Chef Michael Twitty.
