What's the perfect name for a cookie for the king of Black chess in Columbus? What would you name a cookie for someone whose claim to fame is creating vibrant Black communities?

Ernest Levert, Jr. is an extraordinary human by any measure, really. An academic all-star from the start, with an engineering degree from Ohio State, Ernest decided to live a life that was all about engineering, just not in the way anyone anticipated. He has designed his life around solving problems and improving the world through relationships.

How many organizations can benefit from the leadership of one person? Before his tragic aneurysm that caused significant brain damage and has led to a series of serious complications, Ernest was the at the helm and/or part of the leadership team for The Royal Oak Initiative (ROI), The Cooperative Chess Cultural Center (The 4C - pronounced "The Fork"), Plant the Power, and Black Men Build

Here's the thing: of all the things of which Ernest is king, family and friendship are the crown jewels. So it's no surprise that an army of people have shown up to support Ernest and his family during this time. Dee and her husband feel honored to be friends who call Ernest family.

Truthfully, Ernest asked Dee to design a chess centered set of cookies to raise funds for ROI and The 4C years ago. She promised she'd eventually make time to make at least one. Black King is how Dee is making good on that promise, just not in a way that anyone anticipated. This dark chocolate cookie gets its flavor and appearance from organic fair trade dark cocoa powder and vegan and gluten-sensitive graham-like crackers. The cookies are stamped with a rather unorthodox looking chess king that feels like a fitting wink to the ROI logo. They are perfect for dunking, or for using as the outer layers of a s'more.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of this cookie will be donated to the Levert Family to support their life and expenses while Ernest recovers.
