Radio Imbibe Episode 42: Andra “AJ” Johnson 

One of our Imbibe 75 People to Watch shares how she’s amplifying underrepresented voices in the hospitality world.

Imbibe 75 Person to Watch Andra “AJ” Johnson has been a barista, sommelier, cicerone, and bartender, and today she’s a partner and beverage director for Serenata in Washington, D.C. For this episode, we catch up with AJ about her ongoing project White Plates Black Faces, which shares the stories of people of color in the hospitality industry, and talk about her role as co-founder of DMV Black Restaurant Week and the Back to Black series of bar pop-ups. As a bonus, she also shares her recipe for the Venezolana from Serenata.
