There's a piece in The New York Times about an attempt at NYU to honor Black History Month through a specialized menu. It really did not go over well. Black History Month Menu at NYU: Kool-Aid, Watermelon and Controversy (NYT, February 21, 2018).

[The article mentions a great op-ed from several years back which is definitely worth a read as well: The Pain of the Watermelon Joke (by Jacqueline Woodson, 11/28/14).]
