The U.S. Constitution, eh?The oldest in the world, they say...Foundation of our democracyFraught with colonial hypocrisy!Ignoring those who were here firstRights for women and people of color reversedLucky for us amendments existSo, my friends, we must persist!
On this Constitution Day, let’s look deeply and critically at how this document may have offered a republican form of government for some, but denied humanity to others, and contributed to the system of white supremacy we still need to dismantle.
Black lives did not matter to the rich white men who wrote the U.S. Constitution in 1787. About 40 percent of them were enslavers — including George Washington and James Madison, the so-called father of the Constitution. Whatever private qualms some of these men may have had about treating people as property, these did not show up in what they produced. The U.S. Constitution was a document of oppression for enslaved people.

Posted to: Saturday Menu.
The Café’s food philosophy is the reason its menus and meals have become a popular draw to our community. Our philosophy is to find a celebration that falls on each Saturday (or close to it) from any tradition or place on the planet.
Each week the Chef team searches the world for these opportunities to celebrate our community. We embrace cuisine from around the world and bring it to the table for all to eat. Our desire is to provide palette-expanding opportunities that meet the needs of all our guests.
Our food is made from scratch – rarely opening cans or boxes – and meets the needs of any dietary preference or restriction. Our weekly menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free foods as well as meat or fish protein options.
We believe that when we sit down together and share a meal we become a beloved community – a family who shares times of celebration and traditions.
