Keeping Black art and culture alive with dinner and conversation.
SUN, OCT 7 // 2:00pm // Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute
CD Forum is proud to introduce our newest event series: SUNDAY DINNERS.
To honor our 20th anniversary, each month we’ll gather with you for food and conversation, as we celebrate some of the most inspirational Black folx in our community keeping art and culture alive — while enjoying food catered by some of Seattle’s most sought after and talented Black chefs.
Hosted by season curator Dani Tirrell, our October Sunday Dinner features special guest INYE WOKOMA, with food provided by Simply Soulful Cafe And Espresso and Bessie’s Cakes.
Tickets are just $15 / Students $10. We want everyone to be able to join us at the table.
