Black History Month with Chef Jeff Henderson
Welcome to the first day of Black History Month! I just received this press release about a new book by Chef Jeff Henderson just in time for Black History Month if you are in Washington go check him out. I saw him at the Sister to Sister Conference, and he was such a wonderful and gracious person. This brother turned his life around and is now making a difference. The exhibit, America I am also seems very impressive. "This exhibit traces the indelible imprint African Americans have made on America. Their stories - some familiar, many surprising - are inseparable from the story of America itself." Visit one of the largest African American oral history exhibits. A great way to start February.
