I compiled a bunch of articles to make a Google map of Black-owned restaurants in Southern California, I hope to check some of them out when I get back down there! You can also use Intentionalist or EatOkra to find more Black-owned restaurants near you!
Places marked in purple are cafes, bakeries, coffee shops, and dessert places.
Places marked in green are vegan.
Places marked in blue are all other restaurants.
If viewing on a computer, you can also view this map in Google Maps.
This map was created from reading the following articles and Instagram posts:
