Moses: 30 Neighbors. 30 Days. Spotlighting diverse Pittsburghers in social media and here on PUM

 

February 6, Day 18:

 

“When I came here around 2004, I had a tax office in the front of the building. When tax season finished, I didn’t know what to do with my time. I went to buy some African food to cook -- from a Chinese man in the Strip District.  Then, I bought from a Chinese guy in Wilkinsburg. I started thinking: ‘why are Chinese people selling all the African food?’ So, I decided to start an African store where all Africans can come and buy African food, where I know what I’m selling. I moved in here and have been in this building since 2006.” -- Moses  #IamPGH
