Austin Social Hour: Taste of Black Austin

Taste of Black Austin

June 20, 2019

On June 20, Taste of Black Austin guests sampled cuisine created by eight of Austin’s favorite black chefs. The meals were reminiscent of those served to African American travelers from churches, homes and black-owned cafés throughout the Jim Crow South. The educational evening also featured a curated photo exhibition on how Victor H. Green’s “Negro Motorist Green-Book” enabled safer black car travel through the segregated South.
