Houston's Black Restaurant Week kicks off!

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Black Restaurant Week starts on April 14th and we hope you're hungry!

Thirty-six restaurants are participating this year.

They're all offering deals and specials to customers, and a portion of sales will go toward supporting farmers of color.

The idea is for minority business owners to support one another.

"Black restaurant owners and managers make up a total of only eight percent of total restaurants, so to be able to highlight that and create inclusion," explained coordinator Alycia Hightower.

Black Restaurant Week runs from April 14 - April 28 this year.
