Juneteenth Public Broadcasting Network with Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. Adrian Miller - Adrian Miller is a food writer, James Beard Award winner, attorney, and certified barbecue judge who lives in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Miller was a guest speaker at Be3 Dinner Church of our Conference and was recently referenced in the June 2021 edition of the Food Network Magazine teaching that "The definitive Juneteenth trinity is barbecue, watermelon, and a red drink."
