When you visit the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, look on the walls of the Sweet Home Café  and you will see this:

This acknowledgement of our Ancestors and of my work to honor them is beyond moving and important to me. I am part of history, in the architectural family album of African America and I am profoundly humbled. I didn’t know I’d be on that wall, but now that I know I am…everyone of you who read and support this blog and my work are right up on that wall with me. The museum staff has gone to great lengths to include food history and foodways  in its interpretive mission and educational efforts. Please see this museum, go, show your support and your enthusiasm! 

I hope you have a meaningful and profound visit no matter your background. I already love the #NMAAHC not because I’m in it, but because it’s necessary. #apeoplesjourney
