Critics online claimed that a pizza place in Oakland was not owned by black people. They were wrong
When Davina Dickens first placed a “Black Property” cardboard poster in the window of her Oakland restaurant, Graffiti Pizza, she didn’t think about a year later she should stand next to it and try. to convince people that she is Black.
But that’s the situation she found herself in on May 8, when Dickens said a black father and son came to his pizzeria’s door. The father asked to speak to the owner after noticing the sign, which Dickens put up to show solidarity with the anti-racism protests that swept the country after the murder of George Floyd last summer.
