JCA Celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month fact: As you stroll down the cookie aisle at the grocery store, the familiar yellow box filled with chocolate chip cookies that says Famous Amos Cookies was created by Wally Amos. He first began selling cookies in 1975, after receiving some start-up money from several close friends, including the late singer Marvin Gaye, to open a store on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. By the early 1980s, demand was rising, so Amos decided to mass-produce the cookies. He also created Uncle Wally’s Muffins and the Cookie Kahuna. He was also the host of the adult reading program, “Learn to Read”. Amos strongly advocated for literacy and wrote 10 books, most of them with a self-help tone.
