Society and the media paints the image of black males from urban communities as either an athlete or rapper, dead or in jail.
As a result of these stereotypes, our communities face a great degree of self-hate, black on black crime, experiencing crises of identity and disrespect.
The young men of the Black Male Youth Academy have decided to resist these dominant images to transform their community. By being examples of change agents, they are committed to improving the lives of their families, friends and neighbors.
6 medium turnips (about 2 pounds) plus 5 cups chopped turnip greens or spinach, divided
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed
1 teaspoon sugar
4 teaspoons white miso (see Tip)
February is for lovers so I say, Hello Loves! We had a great time at our annual Fruit Tree Giveaway Festival. If you missed it we have pictures coming soon! This week we are featuring leeks. The leek is a vegetable that belongs in the same family as onions and garlic. Bet some of you didn't even know onions and garlic were related! (I didn't until recently. You learn something new everyday! lol) This week's recipe has a really healthy and tasty twist to a classic meal. One of our fellow Inglewoodians is working hard in the gym but has not been dropping weight.
Hello again! We are really excited to announce that its the beginning of Strwaberry season. Because of the mild winter, strawberry season is starting a little early. Continuing with last weeks newsletter where we featured a fruit, this week we are featuring strawberries. This week's recipe has a really healthy and tasty twist to a classic lunch meal. One of our fellow Inglewoodians was having trouble cooking with coconut oil. Check out Betty's thoughts on "smoke points". 2013 is really looking good so far.
