What is Soul Food?

Hello all.

I have never actually eaten 'authentic' soul food. I am not from the US so the cuisine has always been sort of out of reach to me. I am however attracted to the aesthetic of soul food and I hold a certain appeal for it.

Fried chicken. Collard greens. Macaroni and cheese. Sweet potato pie. Peach cobbler. These are some of the dishes I have seen being included in many soul food menus.

My question here is: what are the staples of the soul food cusine?
