Happy Black History Month

This month, we're all about Black History Month and will be featuring iconic African American figures throughout American history. Since African Americans make up the majority of the neighborhood of Harlem, it's important for us to also raise the food issues that not only affect Blacks in the US, but also Harlem in particular.

Stay tuned as we feature some African American greats, as well as news during this festive month of February.
