Most schools in the Washington region will remain closed this fall. So, what's being done to prepare students, teachers and families for continued remote learning?
Most museums play it safe when satisfying hungry visitors. Menus rarely stray from fried favorites, salads, sandwiches and other crowd-pleasing fare. But for Jerome Grant, executive chef of the Smithsonian’s new Museum of African American History and Culture, weaving history into a museum’s culinary offerings is an integral part of the visit. From his work at the Zagat-rated Mitsitsam Cafe at the National Museum of the American Indian to his new kitchen at the Sweet Home Cafe on the National Mall, Grant is upending visitors’ preconceived notions of African American cooking while putting his own thumbprint on D.C.’s thriving culinary scene. Kojo sits down with this Washington-area native to find out how he makes black history come alive at the Sweet Home Cafe and how Grant’s own story influences his cooking.
