Chicago’s Black-Owned Restaurants Celebrating Juneteenth
How Chicago's Black-owned restaurants are celebrating Juneteenth.
Written by

Juneteenth commemorates the date - June 19, 1865 - when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Texas (the most remote of the slave states) to announce that slavery had been abolished. It’s long been celebrated in the Black community, and in recent years, many activists have campaigned for it to be recognized as a national holiday.

This year, the Black People Eats team has brought Chicago’s Black-owned restaurants together to offer $6.19 specials in celebration. We’ve listed the participating restaurants here, and you should head to this site for more information, an interactive map, and restaurants outside of Chicago that are celebrating.
