Re: “Can Black-Owned Restaurants Combat Gentrification?

Oakland has a lot of heart to it. Oakland is a very proud city for all races but for black folks, it's got so much pride and so much to celebrate. Oakland is proud and for good reason too. It's the home of the black panther party, home of the Black Muslim bakery, home of many famous black musicians and music groups such as Toni Tone Tone, Too Short, Luniz, Dru Down, Mc Hammer, The Pointers Sisters, Sly and the Family Stone, and many more. It's also home to a large number of many successful black owned businesses and I know this for a fact cause I'm from the Bay Area and I know Oakland very well. Oakland also has positive things going on in its black community, big time. Kingston 11 is carrying on a rich tradition.
