A nice meal and a purposeful advocacy? Tunde Wey, a chef from Nigeria, has been offering both through his pop-up stalls that serve meals and aims to change people's racial perspectives. The lunch counter, commonly known as Saartj, however, received opposing remarks for charging white people more than double the Black people pay for their meals. Wey installed his first pop-up stall at the Roux Carre market in New Orleans, Louisiana last February. The month-long lunch counter is more than just a meal service, but a sociology experiment as well. Wey tries to teach a lesson about racial wealth disparity. He would tell his customers the price: $12 standard price and $30 suggested price. Black customers are charged $12 while White customers would have to choose to pay $12 or $30.
