Jerk X Jollof brings taste of African and Caribbean culture to Detroit and beyond

It's a sweaty, fast-paced frenzy of sound, smell and taste: a Nigerian flag waves frantically through the air, pulled by a young woman wining up to Maleek Berry’s hit song “Kontrol.” Colorfully patterned West African-inspired clothing dots the pulsing crowd.

My glasses begin to fog, my legs ache from dancing, and my lips still tingle from the suya I ate earlier.
