In honor of Black History month, this event will celebrate the diversity and strength of the black immigrant community in the U.S., while providing guests the opportunity to learn about the experiences of black immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers all while enjoying Immigrant Food's unique food, wine and beer from around the world.
Immigrant Food is a fast-casual turned cause-casual restaurant that fuses gastronomy and immigration advocacy. Just a block from the White House, Immigrant Food’s fresh, creative dishes reflect America at its core: diverse, nourishing and welcoming.
Immigrant Food Co-Owner, Peter Schechter will open the night. Niambi Carter, author of “American While Black: African Americans, Immigration, and the Limits of Citizenship,” will join guests over dinner and drinks for a facilitated conversation about connecting African American and immigrant experiences and her book. Signed copies of her book will also be available for purchase.
This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP using the button on the right. If you have not tried Immigrant Food yet, this is the time to do so! 10% of food sales from the evening will go to the Ethiopian Community Development Council.
