Protests in Las Vegas and across the country continue after George Floyd was killed in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was charged with second degree murder on June 4. Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng were charged with assisting and facilitating second degree murder and second degree manslaughter.
Crowd-sourced lists of black-owned restaurants in Las Vegas emerged as a baseline effort to get these restaurateurs more exposure and support. These lists keep growing as more restaurants are identified in comments on posts.
These lists include favorites like Big Jerk, Eat, and Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, as well as DW Bistro, M & M Soul Food Cafe, and Gritz Cafe.
