Celebrate Juneteenth with us and a free cupcake from The Sweet Fix Bakery, a black owned local business in Cleveland Heights.
The cupcakes, and many other foods associated with Juneteenth are red to symbolize the bloodshed and resilience of the enslaved. But “the practice of eating red foods—red cake, barbecue, punch and fruit—may owe its existence to the enslaved Yoruba and Kongo brought to Texas in the 19th century,” from present-day Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, writes culinary historian and food writer Michael Twitty in his blog Afroculinaria. (Twitty visited OMA & CWRU in 2017)
We're open until 5pm, but these are only as long as they last.
