Where's Maggie

HOUSTON — Black Restaurant Week LLC, the organization responsible for celebrating the flavors of African American, African and Caribbean cuisine with a series of regional cultural events, celebrates five years of service.

The mission: feed and fuel the cultural famine, especially with an emphasis on reviving and saving the black restaurant industry during the COVID-19 pandemic and educate consumers on the abundance of cultural cuisines and dispel ethnic untruths.
