MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF ELI LILLY AND COMPANY FOUNDATION
COME SEE, TASTE, CELEBRATE AND EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELF HOW BLACK CUISINE ADDS FLAVOR TO AMERICA’S FAVORITE FOODS.
Join us as we help celebrate the many ways in which Black culinary traditions have influenced American culture by exploring the story of White House chef Dolly Johnson and promoting local Black-owned businesses. The public is invited to join us at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site for this FREE event where they can sample the delectable offerings of our food partners, browse with our retail partners, and learn about Dolly Johnson, the White House Chef hired by President Benjamin Harrison.
Dolly Johnson brought to life through an reenactment in partnership with Freetown Village.
With a wide array of some of Indianapolis’ most delectably diverse food offerings, this event will incorporate Black restaurants and entrepreneurship through Black cuisine and program partnerships with historically Black non-profit partners, and shares the importance of Juneteenth.
