Three Young Black Men Invite Elderly Woman to Eat With Them After Seeing Her Sitting Alone in Restaurant

Three young men in Alabama are receiving praise after their simple act of kindness went viral.

Jamario Howard was with his friends JaMychol Baker and Tae Knight, waiting for their food at Brad’s Bar-B-Que in Oxford, Alabama, when he noticed a woman sitting alone, according to a now-viral Facebook post.

“My exact thoughts was ‘dang I’d hate to have to eat alone,’” he wrote.

After thinking about it for a minute, Howard walked over and asked to sit with her. He told the Today show she introduced herself as Eleanor, and they talked about her grandchildren, her volunteer work and the things she used to do with her husband.

Eventually, Howard said he learned she had lost her husband and that the next day would have been their 60th anniversary. He immediately offered condolences and invited her to eat with him and his friends, “which she was excited to do.”
