There’s no question that in order for Blacks to gain economic empowerment across the diaspora, we have to start providing monetary support for our own businesses.

After Whole Foods decided to feed the National Guard rather than the 84 percent of Baltimore City Public School students who went without lunch in the wake of the Freddie Gray riots, Blavity curated a list of Black farmers to purchase fresh produce from instead of the popular grocery chain.

Blavity wants to continue supporting this effort by bringing our readers a curated list of Black-owned restaurants to dine at across North America.
