Ladies and Gentlemen, meet SIKA! Sika is not only the name of his business, but also the name the he goes by. I am inspired by Sika’s driven, motivated, eclectic and energetic personality. I met with him and asked to take his photo while doing some field work in the Village last quarter. We held a lengthy conversation, where he discussed tips on staying fit while approaching the age of 70. As many in the community know, SIKA maintains an active and healthy lifestyle, eating a vegan diet and exercising at the nearby Baldwin Hills Kenneth Hahn Recreational Park. He is a leader in the focal movement to support anchor businesses in his respective community. Stop by his store to get the best African American artifacts, including imported goods such as clothing, ebony soap, and art.
