2014 Ford Neighborhood Awards with Steve Harvey

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Saturday was busy. I started my morning with a run down to Locust Grove to visit Noah’s Ark animal sanctuary, then made my way to Norcross for the 47th Atlanta Model Train Show and then headed into the city for the 2014 Ford Neighborhood Awards. The show was surrounded all week by performances and special tapings of different shows at the Georgia World Congress Center and Philips Arena. Known in previous years as The Hoodie Awards, this is the first year that Atlanta has hosted the show which highlights unique categories such as Best Soul Food Restaurant, Best Barber Shop, Best High School Coach, Best Church Choir and others. 12 to be exact. Finalist nominees walked the blue carpet before the show along with celebrities, actors, comedians, recording artists and other well known folks within the African American community. The show is the brain child of Steve Harvey who also appeared with his wife on the carpet as they made their way past fans and inside Philips Arena. Harvey was joined by Shirley Strawberry, David Mann and his wife Tamela from the television series Meet the Browns, Kandi Burruss, minister and gospel singer Donnie McClurkin, Carla Farrell, Rickey Smiley, Keith Sweat, Roland Martin, comedian Earthquake and numerous others.
