After a slow month, I got back into the groove at The Root with features on food, film and business.
On Melba Wilson on Melba’s, her new cookbook, how soul food is the basis for American comfort food and how African Americans invented Farm to Table http://www.theroot.com/articles/culture/2016/04/born_bred_and_buttered_in_harlem_chef_melba_wilson_talks_about_new_cookbook.html
Then the following day, I was in on a GREAT documentary, Two Trains Running about the coincidence in the search for Son House and Skip James and the Freedom Summer in Mississippi. http://www.theroot.com/articles/culture/2016/04/new_film_explores_how_the_search_for_2_long_forgotten_bluesmen_intersected.html
Finally, the next day, I was in on a unique business incubator that directs venture capital to minority and women entrepreneurs. http://www.theroot.com/articles/culture/2016/04/here_s_what_happens_when_you_give_money_to_women_and_minority_entrepreneurs.html
