    The hook-up

    We all know about MLK, Marcus Garvey, and the other famous, more prominent
    black figures in history, but what about the less famous ones who have
    made arguably as valuable contributions?

    Take Exhibit 1...

    Cheryl "Peaches" Delaney of Englewood, NJ, was working the night shift at
    a McDonalds in 1974. The 16 year-old high school junior had just
    been severely reprimanded by her manager, one Arnold McFarland, over her
    Afro hairdo being unprofessional. McFarland gave her an ultimatum of
    wearing
    a clown hat or being fired. Delaney, working to save money for
    cosmetology school, relented and wore the clown hat.

    Hours later, she noticed several of her classmates in the
    drive-through window, on their way to a party. Lucious Jones, Fred
    Williams,
    Eddie James, and Derrick Smith were riding in a green AMC Pacer. The
    four
    of them ordered four hamburgers, and were going to split three orders of
    fries and two cokes. Peaches, filling the order, noticed that
    McFarland
    (the manager) had taken his nightly thirty-minute bathroom break,
    had
    an epiphany.

    She locked eyes with LaWanda, who was on fries, and Fat Sam, who was on
    the register, and in a blur of motion, they stuffed 5 jumbo bags with
    every single hamburger, cheeseburger, French fry, cookie, and other
    item
    they could find, accepting $1.01 from Lucious Jones as payment.

    Cheryl "Peaches" Delaney had invented... "The Hook-Up".

    We salute you Ms. Cheryl "Peaches" Delaney...a Black pioneer and hero!
