Three Nigerian entrepreneurs, based in New York City, have created a new, healthy 100% raw sugarcane juice beverage that they say is better for you than coconut juice. The unique beverage is cold pressed from carefully selected farm-fresh sugarcane stalks with no added sugar.
How they got started
Ganiu Ladejobi, with his partners Peterson Lochard and Mackenzie Bien-Aime, saw an opportunity to offer a healthy beverage that they enjoyed in Nigeria. And so, they decided to name the company, Sugarcane Island.
In the beginning, they were distributing directly to health food supermarkets in New York City. Later, however, they added bars and restaurants to their distribution because “sugarcane juice is also a great mixer for cocktails and other mixed drinks,” explains Ladejobi.
Amazing health benefits
According to many nutritionists and physicians, sugarcane juice is extremely nourishing and rich in antioxidants, which helps fights infections and boosts the immunity. It’s also rich in iron, magnesium, calcium and other electrolytes which makes it particularly good for dehydration. Further, it can help cure colds and other infections and fight off fevers.
In a recent interview with Black Enterprise, Ladejobi said that sugarcane juice is more versatile than coconut water, which is why he believes that “sugarcane juice will be the next popular beverage here in the United States.”
He also hopes to expand to other products, including “a line of herbal teas, all natural sugarcane body soaps, sugarcane infused energy bars, and a few other things.”

Now a classic text, Reconstruction examines the period that followed the Civil War. Foner recounts, in stunning detail, the triumph and tragedy of a nation that attempted to rebuild a democratic republic in the shadow of slavery and after years of violent conflict. The book’s major concerns—citizenship, civil rights, and the legacy of racism—remain hotly contested to this day.

Harvard University Press,
1998Buy this book
After the Civil War, black men and women created their lives anew as free people, often taking to the open road in the attempt to distance themselves from their memories of slavery and the cotton fields. Hunter offers a compelling narrative about the lives of black women in the urban South who refused to buckle under the challenges of black codes, racial violence, and the rise of Jim Crow. To ’Joy My Freedom chronicles the experiences of the women who worked to rebuild families, earn an income, and find ways to live and love in turbulent times.

In this meticulously researched biography, Giddings uses the life of Ida B. Wells to expose the racial terror faced by African Americans in the post-Emancipation years. Born enslaved in Mississippi, Wells confronted the vulnerability of black life by challenging white supremacy. As a journalist and crusader in the fight to end lynching, she held the nation accountable for its sins.

Muhammad’s book is an impressive achievement and a timely read. He explores the perceived markers of race and criminality in the first generation of black men and women born after slavery. The Condemnation of Blackness explains how the notion of black criminality has left a devastating mark on African-American lives from the Jim Crow era up to the present.

This beautifully written book leads its readers on the journey from Emancipation to the devastating convict-leasing system in Georgia. Centering her narrative around black women, LeFlouria shows how the South’s convict-labor system forced African Americans into labor camps and factories where the conditions were similar to enslavement. Chained in Silence examines the exploitation of black women’s bodies, the beginnings of mass incarceration, and the rise of the modern New SouthPost Views: 1,286
