I am a Gullah Geechee native of North Charleston, South Carolina who uses humor to highlight Black food culture and history!
KJ started BFF in April of 2020, at the beginning of the global pandemic. The original goal was just to highlight Black owned restaurants that were open during COVID-19. It has since evolved into an aggregate landing page for people who are intentional about spending with Black owned food-based businesses whether that's restaurants, consumer packaged good brands, chefs, caterers, recipe developers, cookbook authors, and even other Black food bloggers & influencers.
KJ is a proud 2005 graduate of the illustrious HBCU, South Carolina State University. Home of the Mighty Bulldogs and the Marching 101 where he earned a B.S. in Business Management.
