Centennial cookbook needs recipes, stories


Named after one of Chandler’s fi rst and most well- known African American entrepreneurs, N.J. Harris, the “N.J. Harris-Kesler Neighborhood Cookbook,” a centennial commemorative book, will help preserve the history of the predominantly Hispanic and African American neighborhood that played an important role in the city’s cultural and socio-economic development. Current and former residents of the N.J. Harris- Kesler neighborhood in downtown Chandler are encouraged to mail recipes and neighborhood stories by Fri., Dec. 2 to Centennial Cookbook Project, Community Services Dept., Mail Stop 500, P.O. Box 4008, Chandler, AZ 85244. Submissions may also be left in the Chandler Centennial drop boxes located in City Hall, the Downtown Chandler Public Library, the Saragosa Street Salvation Army, Mt. Olive Baptist Church, St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the Chandler Museum.


The project will culminate in a special presentation and book distribution at Chandler’s Birthday Party on May 19, 2012. Project organizers intend to print 1,500 copies and distribute them at no charge to neighborhood residents, project participants, local libraries and museums, and the general public. The project is funded through a grant from Arizona Humanities Council, Chandler Historical Society and the Community Documentation Program. It is a collaboration between the Chandler Centennial Committee, Chandler Museum, Neighborhood Programs Division and Human Relations Commission.
