Ode to Black Women and Bus Boys & Poets

I was browsing through the Bus Boys and Poets website and came across a music video described as an "ode to black women." This is what music should be used for.

And I am excited to check out Bus Boys and Poets on 14th and V Street after viewing their website because they have a fair number of vegan items on the menu, they're fair trade, they focus on the local, and it just sounds like a place that acknowledges the incredible power of food as a social element:

Busboys and Poets is a restaurant, bookstore, fair trade market and gathering place where people can discuss issues of social justice and peace. Each Busboys and Poets location should enhance the community -- allowing us to bring together a diverse clientele reflective of the surrounding neighborhoods. Busboys and Poets creates an environment where shared conversations over food and drink allow the progressive, artistic and literary communities to dialogue, educate and interact.
