About the event

 In partnership with the Washington Informer Charities, Inc. and Solid Rock Creative Food Group, DMV Black Restaurant Week's 1st Annual Awards and Scholarships Gala celebrates the legacy and influence of D.C.-area chefs and hospitality professionals who laid the foundation and shaped the industry in a broad and meaningful way. It is a celebration of cuisine from the African Diaspora and the launch of Black (Food) History Month. Awards will be given on this night and we are pleased to announce that scholarships will be provided to students graduating from the culinary programs at Anacostia, Ballou, and Roosevelt High Schools in Washington, D.C. and Prince George's Community College in Largo, Maryland. With curation led by author, host, and celebrity Executive Chef Rahman “Rock” Harper,  a 3-course dinner will be served featuring foods from the African Diaspora. Recipes honoring the past and the present are bound to delight everyone’s palate.
