25 Black-Owned Restaurants in NYC
I once read somewhere
Currently, a dollar circulates in Asian communities for a month, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days and white communities 17 days. How long does a dollar circulate in the black community? 6 hours! African American buying power is at 1.1 Trillion; and yet only 2 cents of every dollar an African American spends in this country goes to black owned businesses.
Seeing these type of startling statistics regarding black-owned business is why it is crucial to support these type of companies. I recently watched Killer Mike’s Netflix special where he spends three days using and consuming only products that come from the black community. This challenge results in him sleeping on a park bench and only using a bike as his main form of transportation. This special served as a reminder of why it is crucial to support black-owned business. I have comprised a list of 25 black-owned restaurants in New York City.
If you live in Dallas be sure to check out a list of black-owned restaurants at Brandi’s Food Diary site, and if you live in Houston check out Black Girls Who Brunch site. These two are currently both running a Black-Owned Restaurant Bingo Challenge for Black History Month!
