As rallies and vigils continue in Boston and across the country to denounce the killing of George Floyd, protest police brutality, and support the Black Lives Matter Movement, many people are choosing to show their support by putting money behind Black-owned businesses and restaurants.

Boston’s Black community has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, leaving the city’s Black restaurant owners facing a public health crisis and its economic fallout amid a nationwide reckoning for racial justice.

Want to support Boston’s Black-owned restaurant community with your dollars? Here’s a list of places to start.
