City Paper is not for tourists
This awesome cereal display was taking up prime real estate near the checkout at the U Street 7-11. Lloyd Price Icon Food Brands, Inc., makes a wide variety of uplifting products branded in homage to the cultural stars of African American history. The Make Mamma Proud granola/cereal line is available in two flavors, with boxes honoring Sugar Ray Robinson, Lloyd Price, Dorothy Dandridge and Louis Armstrong. The company’s website identifies its target market as first, African Americans, and second, Hispanics. Unfortunately, I only had a few bucks on me and didn’t shell out about $5 for a box.
