Here is our list of 101 Black-Owned restaurants to support now. I hope all is well. There is so much going on; I honestly don’t know how I feel right now. I’m numb! A significant part of me is angry, and I also feel deep sadness, disappointment, and pain. I am mentally and emotionally overwhelmed.
As a black woman, I wish I had some great insight to share today that would make us all feel better, but I am without words. As I searched for ways to support my friends and my community yesterday—I was brought to something that gives me great comfort and a sense of togetherness. Food.
I created this list of restaurants yesterday to share with my friends and family. A way for us to love and support our black business owners. Many of us ordered takeout or had meals delivered, while others purchased gift cards to give as gifts or to use at a later time.
As I type this article, it’s 3:54 AM, and I am still up. I have been unable to sleep for the last 48 hours. But decided to share this list with you, and I hope you join us in Love and support.
I ask that you kindly support a restaurant from this list or a black-owned business of your choice as a sign of Love and support for one another. We are more than anger, pain, and hurt—we are the hope, Love, joy, faith, and goodness this world offers.
Here is my list of 101 Fabulous Black-Owned Restaurants—many of which are my favorites. I will also share it on Instagram.
