GHRA Juneteenth Tasting Tour

Dear GHRA Community –
Next week we will celebrate Juneteenth (Friday, June 19th).  If you were not aware of the special connection between Juneteenth and Houston’s Emancipation park – learn more here
In support and celebration of our vast black restaurant community, we are planning a GHRA Juneteenth Tasting Tour around the city.  Each day next week we will be spotlighting different parts of town and featuring a few of the black-owned restaurants in that community.  This will not be a comprehensive list – and we welcome your feedback for additional black-owned restaurants in our city. 
Our industry is greatly strengthened by our diversity. Juneteenth is a very important celebration in the black community’s history of our nation, especially in Texas. With tensions high throughout the country after the death of Houstonian George Floyd, we think it’s especially important to show our support for the black community during this time.
Please join us next week in trying the local favorites and supporting our vast community of local black restaurant owners.
Have a wonderful week – wash your hands & mask up!

Executive Director
