BLACK-OWNED RESTAURANTS in Major US Cities

Updated: Jun 12

With #BlackLivesMatter movement RIGHTFULLY at the forefront of the media, many are sharing resources outlining ways for non-Blacks to take anti-racist action and support Black communities across the United States. These actions comes in many forms and include (but are not limited to) demonstrations, learning about systemic racism, analyzing white privilege, examining white fragility, making donations, and supporting Black-owned businesses.


In an effort to consolidate resources for the latter, I've compiled lists of Black-Owned Restaurants in Major US Cities. I've seen these restaurant lists floating around social media, and I wanted them to have a home for actionable change! If you have additional lists for additional cities, please contact me with the link and creator for proper credit.

In addition, I've linked anti-racism resources that I've personally found useful in this previous post.
