This is our preliminary list of as many Black-owned restaurants as we could find in Louisville. Please give them your support!
The list is compiled from our own records, bolstered by lists assembled by social-media friends. You should be able to quickly find more information by searching the restaurant names on Facebook or your favorite search engine; in coming days we’ll also work to provide links and additional information.
Please let us know if you would like to suggest corrections, additions or deletions.
