MKE Black will sponsor a Black-owned food truck "block party" on Saturday, Feb. 20 as a part of their Black History Month programming.
The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 3356 N. Holton St. on the Beerline Trail Plaza, just north of the Family Dollar.
Food will be available from Fully Loaded / Blue Magic Food Truck, Africa's Finest Cuisine, Bebe's Food Truck and Soulful Juice. Bronze Box Gifts will also be on site selling items.
All food is to go. Mask wearing and social distancing will be enforced.
“We know that Black-owned restaurants have been hit hard by COVID and that people are eager to support and have a reason to leave the house, so we’re hoping folks will come out and brave the cold to help Black-owned businesses thrive,” says Executive Director Rick Banks.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
