RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC)– Starting Sunday, March 1st and running through March 8th, you’re encouraged to dive deep into Richmond’s black restaurant scene. There will be various events around town where you can try food and experience the culture.

Kicking off this Sunday, March 1st, head out to Kanawha Plaza for ‘Mobile Soul Sunday’. It’s the easiest way to try food from a number of local restaurants through their food trucks! The trucks will be serving from noon until 5pm.

Thursday, March 5th, the Afrikana Film Festival will show a screening of “Boss”. That’s happening at 7pm at the Black History Museum.

Friday March 6th is the ‘Ready to Give’ Party for a Purpose. It’s from 8pm-1am at Vagabond. That same day, ‘Art for the SOUL’ is happening from 5-10pm at Studio Two Three.

Rounding out the week is ‘Stick a Fork in it!’ on Sunday the 8th–that’s at the Altria Theater from noon until 5pm.
