That gaudy, burnt orange food stand is no longer the eyesore you walk by on your way to Midtown. Cuban Gypsy Pantry is your next street food obsession, guilty pleasure, lunch break etc. And it's hidden in plain sight, right on King Street.
As an African Studies enthusiast, I learned a long time ago that the overwhelming majority of enslaved people brought from Africa during the Trans Atlantic Slave trade ended up in Hispanic colonies throughout the Caribbean and South America. So for me, Hispanic Heritage Month represents another opportunity to celebrate and uplift black history on a national scale, similarly to how it’s done in February for African American History.
