Black Food Historian Goes Viral On TikTok

KJ Kearney is looking to educate by using your favorite dishes.

KJ Kearney is the newest sensation on TikTok for Black Food Fridays.

Every Friday, he celebrates Black food with a touch of history and it has been coined Black Food Fridays. Kearney wants to make the weekly celebration as big as Taco Tuesdays, telling, "I've woken up or been walking around on a Tuesday not knowing what to eat and then something in my subconscious rings a bell and says, 'It's Tuesday, you know what day it is.' And it's just like, 'Oh snap!' It's almost an instinctual thing."
