Jamal Waldron, De’Von Christopher Johnson and Trevor Sinclair
De’Von Christopher Johnson, Trevor Sinclair and Jamal Waldron started out years ago investing in the stock market as members of an investment club. While other members of their investment club moved on, they pushed on and last year started their own business: Atomic Wings Harlem.
On Sunday December 13, 2009, Atomic Wings Harlem, located on the corner of 113th Street and Frederick Douglas avenue, celebrated its one year anniversary with a public celebration.
The owners took this opportunity to say thank you to the community for their support. Guests enjoyed music, food and artwork on display by Harlem artist James Shields. Additionally, Atomic Wings Harlem kicked off their internal mentorship program which will pair employees under the age of 18 with an owner or community leader once a week.

Now a Harlem celebration would not be complete without an appearance by Community Liaison Leslie Wyche. Among others Nina Flowers from the Apollo, artist Gwendolyn Black, John Jay College’s William A. Allen, MS, MPA and artist/producer Maxine McCrey stopped in to help Atomic Wings Harlem celebrate.
If you haven’t been to or order from Atomic Wings Harlem, De’Von Christopher Johnson says come on by and try us out. It’s a good experience.
