There is a very nice article in today's NY Times about all the food heritage thoughts and menu planning that went into the Sweet Home Cafe in the recently opened Museum of African American History and Culture, the newest Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

In addition to a long discussion of all that contributed to a menu that is complementary to the museum offerings, there is also a slide show that gives the reader a glimpse at some of the food offerings, the staff, and the setting.
And one of those photos portrays the Greensboro Four at the Woolworth Lunch Counter
The full article, Museum Cafeteria Serves Black History and a Bit of Comfort is an enjoyable read.

Awesome! I had a friend spend the weekend in DC and he said the new museum is one of the BEST he's ever seen. Looking at the pix from his IG, I can see it's definitely an experience. So cool that G'boro got a little recognition. I had lemonade at the counter the year they closed the Woolworth when I was a kid.
