For 22 years, Dora Charles was the queen of the Deen kitchens. She helped open the Lady & Sons, the restaurant here that made Ms. Deen’s career. She developed recipes, trained other cooks and made sure everything down to the collard greens tasted right.
“If it’s a Southern dish,” Ms. Deen once said, “you better not put it out unless it passes this woman’s tongue.”
Paula Deen used people like Dora Charles to work for almost nothing, help make her rich and used racial slurs to keep them "in their place".
Isn't that the definition of slavery?
