We ventured out to our greater backyard this summer/fall for some exploration. *
First time touring the White House and the Washington Monument (great seeing DC from its top window!). *
A return to the Lincoln Memorial and a first time visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. My girls are ready for the step team after that visit (swipe ➡ to see them go)!

Spent the afternoon at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. •
This amazing visit highlighted my family roots starting with slavery, moving to segregation, then to pop culture and finished with modern day icons. Not only was the visit educational, but also empowering, diving deep into the richness and diversity of African American history. A must see if you're in the D.C area.
Oysters are often seen as a luxury food now, but throughout much of early American history they were so abundant that people from all classes regularly ate them. In coastal cities, you could have them on the street or in dingy bars for practically nothing. In late 1800s New York, a man named Thomas Downing built an empire out of an oyster bar. But here's the thing: he was a black man doing this during the era of slavery. Joanne Hyppolite, curator at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, shared Downing's story with Francis Lam. If their discussion makes you hungry for oysters, satisfy your craving with our recipe for Classic Creamy Oyster Stew.
