HDI Is Proud To Announce That Adrian Miller, An HDI Cultural Envoy, Has Been Inducted Into the Blacks in Colorado Hall of Fame

The Humpty Dumpty Institute (HDI) works around the world to inform and foster dialogue amongst critical stakeholders on key global issues. We do this through our programs with the U.S. Congress and the United Nations, engaging young people, supporting cultural and sports diplomacy, and working on humanitarian programs. HDI employs cultural programming, including culinary diplomacy, to promote dialogue. We collaborate with U.S. Embassies and Consulates to share American culture and values worldwide.

Mr. Adrian Miller is one of HDI’s most requested cultural envoys. Adrian is an American culinary historian, lawyer, and public policy advisor. His books have twice won the James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship: Soul Food in 2014 and Black Smoke in 2022.

In addition, Adrian served as a White House Advisor to U.S. President Bill Clinton.
