The Austin Justice Coalition is hosting Black Food Week which aims to provide the Austin community with information about Austin's longstanding black owned restaurants.
Each day a different restaurant in the African-American food community will host "Eat and Greet" social hours. It's all designed to give the public a chance to support locally owned minority businesses and also let people learn more about the history of the restaurants.
"I think it's important to highlight the fact that we've been able to maintain, been able to strive through the change, and still been able to withstand the gentrification," says Austin Justice Coalition's Chas Moore. "We've still been able to withstand all the crazy things that have happened in Austin over the last 25-30 years."
The event goes on until August 11th. For more information about the restaurants and hours for the Eat and Greets you can go here.
