Eat Vegan at These Black-Owned Restaurants Any Day of the Week
This story has been updated. It was published on June 19th, or Juneteenth, but you can eat at these restaurants any day of the week. Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery, marking the anniversary of June 19th, 1865, when Union army general Gordon Granger announced the end of the Civil War and the end of slavery. While Abraham Lincoln wouldn't sign the Emancipation Proclamation for nearly two more years, Juneteenth became a symbolic day for Black Americans to celebrate freedom.
Although it is not recognized as a federal holiday, in light of the worldwide dialogue being held about racial injustice, many have urged the government to consider making Juneteenth an official holiday. To help you celebrate, The Beet rounded up Black-owned vegan and plant-based restaurants across the country so you can eat vegan and support these establishments, today and every day.
