Students in an Omaha Public Schools summer school program took part in a tasty lesson Thursday. Incoming freshmen had the opportunity to go to the popular restaurant, Big Mama's Kitchen, for a history lesson.
The students are taking part in a class called "making invisible history visible." At Thursday's session they listened to Big Mama talk about her experience of growing up in Omaha and living in the city the past 70 years.
Student Courtney Sidzik said, "we're learning about African American history, and to recover what has been lost in North Omaha and to see what is still left, out of all the history."
In addition to the oral history lesson students were treated to taste some of Big Mama's soul food.
