2nd Annual Sisters Who Can Burn

A feast for the senses awaited the scores of folks who turned out at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center for an afternoon featuring Baltimore area women chefs of color.

Guests could browse a number of food stations set up by the chefs all over the center, and taste samples of their specialities.
There was also music and entertainment, as well as a number of vendors to shop.
The event also served to raise awareness of the impact of breast cancer within the African-American community.
