A Taste of Washington, D.C.

did you know?

  1. Washington, D.C. had a resident population of 601,723 in 2010, the 26th most populous city in the country.

  2. Confirming the fears of pro-slavery Alexandrians, the Compromise of 1850 outlawed the slave trade in the District, though not slavery itself. By 1860, approximately 80% of the city's African American residents were free blacks. The outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861 led to notable growth in the District's population due to the expansion of the federal government and a large influx of freed slaves.

  3. After the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on April 4, 1968, riots broke out in the District, primarily in the U Street, 14th Street, 7th Street, and H Street corridors, centers of black residential and commercial areas.

  4. Unique among cities with a high percentage of African Americans, Washington has had a significant black population since the city's creation. This is partly a result of the manumission of slaves in the Upper South after the American Revolutionary War. The free black population in the region climbed from an estimated 1% before the war to 10% by 1810. In the District, black residents composed about 30% of the population between 1800 and 1940. Washington's black population reached a peak of 70% of the city's residents by 1970. Since then, however, the District's black population has steadily declined due to many blacks leaving the city for the surrounding suburbs. At the same time, the city's white population has steadily increased, in part due to effects of gentrification in many of Washington's traditionally black neighborhoods.

  5. The U Street Corridor in Northwest D.C., known as "Washington's Black Broadway", is home to institutions like Bohemian Caverns and the Lincoln Theatre, which hosted music legends such as Washington-native Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis. Other jazz venues feature modern blues such as Madam's Organ in Adams Morgan and Blues Alley in Georgetown. D.C. has its own native music genre called go-go; a post-funk, percussion-driven flavor of R&B that blends live sets with relentless dance rhythms. The most accomplished practitioner was D.C. band leader Chuck Brown, who brought go-go to the brink of national recognition with his 1979 LP Bustin' Loose.

  6. In 1975, Walter Washington became the first elected and first black mayor of the District.

  7. Washington climate is typical of Mid-Atlantic U.S. areas removed from bodies of water. Spring and fall are warm, while winter is cool with annual snowfall averaging 14.7 inches. Winter temperatures average around 38 °F from mid-December to mid-February. Summers are hot and humid with a July daily average of 79.2 °F and average daily relative humidity around 66%, which can cause medium to moderate personal discomfort.

2 nd Annual Festival Presents Largest Gathering of Black and Minority Trailblazers in the Wine, Beer and Spirits Industries

- A One-of-a-kind Opportunity to own and Sample Vintage and Specialty Wines, Quality Hops and a Variety of New Libations at the 2nd Annual Black Owned Wine and Spirits Festival Sponsored by FOU-DRE Vodka -

Washington, DC - September 7, 2017 - The 2nd Annual Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival will take place in Washington, DC on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 12pm to 8pm at The Showroom DC . The Festival was founded by Chanel Turner , the first African American woman currently at the helm of a vodka company. In 2009, Turner launched FOU-DRÉ Vodka into the heavily male dominated industry. FOU-DRÉ (a play on the French word for lighting per the unique lightning shape of the bottle) has since then turned the company into a global brand with international distribution.

Much like FOU-DRÉ, title sponsor, the Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival is a trailblazing endeavor, which has grown rapidly with positive recognition. Turner’s goal for the Festival is to bring together minority winemakers, distillers, brewers and distributors such as herself, in an educational, networking and consumer-friendly environment, to promote commerce and brand awareness.

The Festival’s new and dynamic event venue, The Showroom DC, features an industrial-chic warehouse space and panoramic rooftop with breathtaking DC views. This will serve as the backdrop for a day of industry networking, consumer education, hors d’ oeuvres, shopping, and of course, sampling and sipping.

The Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival is comprised of three major components: Industry Networking , Brand Exposure and Consumer Education . A canvas for experiential branding, the event embodies a farmer’s market style flow, featuring the goods of craft wine, beer and spirits companies as well as specialty items and tastes from food and retail brands. The Festival celebrates the bounty of craft wine, spirits, and beer found in this unique category of producers, and naturally facilitates long-lasting business relationships designed to propel the overall success of the industry as whole. A wide array of products and samples will be on hand, for a unique opportunity to purchase numerous minority owned goods, services, and libations from one place, in one day. Featured vendors include:

FOU-DRE Vodka / Flo Wine / Markell Ban i / Suite Four / P. Harrell Wine / Harlem Brewing Den of Thieves / Black Crystal Wine / Cap City Beverage / East Road Beverages

The Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival’s ultimate goal is to ignite a movement towards widespread support of these unique, small-batch brands. Over 25 selections of wines, spirits and beers will be on display at this year’s festival. An industry-only networking hour allows vendors and sponsors priceless face time with bartenders, beverage directors, producers, retailers, distributors, investors and more.

Tickets can be purchased here:


. About The Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival: The Black Owned Wine and Spirits Festival was created to fill a niche and provide new opportunities for a unique category of producers. The first of its kind, the Festival has fostered an environment where African American-owned spirits, wine, and beer brands can come together in one setting for the single common purpose of growth. The Festival lays a foundation of commerce and education that inspires and propels the widespread support of black-owned spirits, wine and beer

About Chanel Turner and FOU-DRÉ Vodka: Chanel Turner is the founding organizer of The Black Owned Wine & Spirits Festival. Turner is also the owner of FOU-DRÉ Vodka, a premium, infused vodka made with lime, pomegranate, ginger and kiwi. The award winning, five-times distilled vodka is made through a unique patented distilling process using TerrePure technology in Charleston, South Carolina. FOU-DRÉ is globally distributed and unique in design. Resembling a lightning bolt, the brand’s bottle shape, and concept hails from the meaning of FOU-DRÉ; the French word for lightning. The bottle is manufactured in France, and has itself won numerous awards in design. FOU-DRÉ retails at approximately $44 a bottle.

Karlsruhe – inspiration for Washington, D.C.’s street design

- Did you ever wonder about D.C.’s extraordinary street layout? -

It all began during Thomas Jefferson’s term as American ambassador to France (1785–1789). His interest in the arts and architecture made him travel extensively throughout France, Northern Italy and Germany. It was then that he also visited Karlsruhe, the northern gateway to the Black Forest. He was impressed with the fan-shaped layout of the city with all the main streets radiating from the baroque palace, which had been built some 70 years earlier.

As a matter of fact, Karlsruhe impressed Thomas Jefferson so much that he sent a sketch of the city’s layout to Pierre L’Enfant, a French-born architect who had served on General George Washington’s staff at Valley Forge. It was in 1791, when then President George Washington appointed him to plan the new capital, that he used Thomas Jefferson’s sketch of Karlsruhe as inspiration for the design of Washington, D.C.

So what about Karlsruhe? The 300-year-old city on the northern rim of the Black Forest in SouthWest Germany invites travelers to follow in Thomas Jefferson’s footsteps. With the baroque palace and its botanical garden at the city’s center, more than 2,500 acres of parks and green spots, and world-renowned museums, the city with a population of 300,000 is the perfect base for exploring the Black Forest and many other exciting places in that part of Germany.

A mere hour by high-speed train directly from Frankfurt Airport, Karlsruhe’s palace tower awaits visitors with its amazing view of the city. Just beneath it, the palace’s botanical garden invites them to travel back in time and take a stroll where the margraves, prince-electors and grand dukes of Baden once lived.

Culture lovers will fall in love with the city. In addition to the Center for Art and Media (ZKM), which is unique worldwide, Karlsruhe regularly hosts great exhibitions of international relevance: visitors can enjoy a great exhibition of the works of Paul Cézanne, comprising first-class loans from international collections all over the world, at the Staatliche Kunsthalle (The State Art Gallery) from October 28 to February 2, for instance.

Located at the northernmost corner of the Black Forest right next to the river Rhine, Karlsruhe is also the perfect starting point for day trips to Heidelberg, the Black Forest and France, enabling visitors to effortlessly dive into another world. Houses that are more than 300 years old and fairy-tale villages still form the most authentic part of SouthWest Germany: the Black Forest. While letting their eyes wander across the vast hills and valleys lined with millions upon millions of spruce, visitors can enjoy the thrall of the cuckoo’s song as well as the region’s world-famous culinary delights, including Black Forest cake and Black Forest ham.

About Karlsruhe:
Karlsruhe, formerly the capital of Baden, lies in southwest Germany, on the western flank of Baden-Württemberg. Situated adjacent to the mighty river Rhine, the city is close to the border with France. The climate is very pleasant – its location on the Rhine Plain makes Karlsruhe one of the sunniest and warmest cities in Germany. Founded by Margrave Charles William nearly 300 years ago, the city’s plan resembles that of Paris, with streets laid out in rays, like the ribs of a fan, radiating from a central point that is the margrave’s palace. The renowned 18th century city planner L’Enfant liked Karlsruhe’s design so much that he incorporated its elements into his plans for Washington, D.C.
