This week I visited the South Shore community, "The East Side." South Shore is well renowned for the South Shore Cultural Center. Shockingly, in 1906 the Cultural Center was a "whites only" country club. Chicago has been called the most segregated City in the Country. I hope my travels encourage Chicagoans to explore our City. We have the opportunity to travel the world without leaving Chicago.
First stop was "Give me some Sugah" coffee shop. The owner, Mrs. Leslie made me a special care packet full of cookies and pastaries. She's always so sweet. I told her that I'll try to get Mayor Rahm Emanuel to stop by and visit her shop soon. I hope he tunes in to this weeks episode.
I bumped into a few of the 7th Ward Aldermanic Candidates while they were out campaigning. Pastor Jedidiah Brown is a good friend.
While visiting Chef Sara's Cafe, I ran into another 7th Aldermanic Candidate, Mrs. Keiana Barrett. She has a ton of political experience. I actually heard she was running for Alderman via her younger sister Keirra, who's a very talented videographer. Small world.
Make sure you stop at Chef Sara's Cafe to try the Shrimp and Grits! South Shore was the truth. I walked everywhere in my Bucketfeet "Swopes Mid-Top" Shoes.
