By MARIE NESMITH

In honor of Black History Month, Alexis Carter-Callahan will showcase a slice of her family’s heritage during A Taste of Africa Feb. 26. The Cartersville resident will be the featured speaker at the Etowah Valley Historical Society’s African-American History Initiative program.

After Oakland had just come back to school from a three-day break courtesy of the polar vortex,  African music was playing over the speakers, and people filtered into the Taste of Africa event hosted by the Center for Multicultural Initiatives (CMI) on Feb. 1.

Food was served, and there were anything from collard greens, to candied yams to catfish to celebrate African culture and to kick off African American History Month. Coloring pages of prominent figures throughout African American history were spread out among the tables, which was a way to get the guests involved before the big show started.
