This has been a trying year for everyone. Especially the black community. Disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, a black person is approximately five times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 than a non-hispanic white person according to the CDC. Black businesses continue to grapple with long-standing inequities that are only exacerbated by the current situation.
Our everyday actions should speak to our values. Showing up for the black community can be as simple as ordering take out, so we compiled a list of black owned restaurants in Arlington for you to revisit an old favorite or find a new one:
