On MLK Day we take a moment to reflect on the life and lasting legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year we want you to commit to finding a role in advancing his belief that we should all be free. Please join the NAACP Cleveland Branch and our criminal justice reform partners for a private screening of Just Mercy, based on the true story of one young attorney’s commitment to fighting to get an innocent black man freed from death row. Stay for the panel discussion following the film to learn more about what you can do to advocate for change in our system. Partners include Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, ACLU, Alliance for Safety and Justice, Cuyahoga County Office of Reentry, Third Space Action Labs. Media Sponsor Radio ONE Cleveland.

In a continuing partnership between the NAACP, The Real Black Friday, the Cavs and Aramark, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will welcome 20 black chefs who own local Cleveland restaurants, food trucks and catering businesses to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse for Taste of Black Cleveland: The Food Showcase 3.0 on Monday, February 10th.
After very successful events in 2017 and 2018, The Food Showcase 3.0 (formerly the Launch Test Kitchen Food Tasting & Business Development Experience) has expanded from an annual private tasting and industry event to a public celebration of food and opportunity as part of Cleveland’s dynamic restaurant landscape.
Twenty local black chefs will earn the opportunity to participate in The Food Showcase 3.0 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, including the five highest-scoring restaurants voted on by locals during Black Restaurant Week 2019. Chefs will prepare their signature dishes for guests to sample and vote on their favorite items based on quality, variety and presentation of dishes.
The winners will be awarded cash and prizes, as well as consideration for additional opportunities at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and more. They will also be recognized on-court at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse during the Cavaliers game on Wednesday, February 26th vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.
