Local News: The Inaugural Black Restaurant Week Kicks Off in Augusta, Ga July 20

The city of Augusta, Ga. will host it’s first Black Restaurant Week from July 20-25, 2021. The week long event will highlight Black owned restaurants in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) and highlight their socioeconomic impact to their area. Black owned restaurants were greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but were largely overlooked when it came to receiving relief.
