Food Issues Highlight Emerging Leaders in the Black Community – CNN.com

 What do you do if your son has food allergies, but the local grocery stores don’t carry the appropriate safe, organic produce? One Chicago woman, LaDonna Redmond, began to grow her own garden, supplying her son with the only produce she could guarantee was safe. Encouraged by Michelle  Obama’s planting a garden at the White House, Redmond continued to grow her produce, and made plans to open a neighborhood grocery store of her own: Graffiti and Grub. Leadership, community action, and ingenuity, as this article comments, are valued by and demonstrated within the black community. Click the photo or the link below to see other examples.
