Lena Horne
Happy 92nd Birthday! - June 30th

Malcolm X
made me very strong at a time
I needed to understand what I was angry about. He had peace in his heart. He exerted a big influence on

"You have to be taught to be second class; You are not born that way"

"I told them, I belong to the
same organizations and clubs
Mrs. Roosevelt belongs to,
but with a few brave exceptions,
I was still unable to do films or television for the next seven years."

I'm not alone, I'm free.
I no longer have to be a credit, I don't have to be a symbol to anybody; I don't have to be a first to anybody.

Praise from on high... we're talking Canada!

Harlem One Stop gets endless inquires about all manner of places in Harlem and upper Manhattan.

Just recently a Canadian vistor called to see if we could retrace from her description a restaurant she and a friend had wandered into on 116th Street during a recent visit to NYC.

She mentioned colorful hookah pipes, great food, coffee and a delightful owner, all of which had Harlem One Stop surprisingly stumped. Following her lead, we explored the area only to discover "The KIOSK" a Moroccan restaurant that closely fit her description. All we can say upon checking the place out further is that she lead us to one of the greatest restaurant finds around... and Harlem One Stop has her Canadian curiousity to thank for it.

Everything about the restaurant is charming and delighful, so we encourage you to run, not walk there as soon as you can.
