As a magazine and site focused on international food traditions, SAVEUR believes that supporting diversity in the food world (and everywhere) is crucial in our industry and communities. Memphis, the site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination and the location of the National Civil Rights Museum today, has a monumental place in the civil rights movement. The museum houses 260 artifacts and 40 interactive stations which teach about our country's civil rights history, and many of the city streets are adorned with artworks portraying moments important to the movement. But we love that you can also taste and see the sense of equality and unity in the Memphis restaurant scene. Since 1946, The Four Way has had a history of feeding everyone, including Dr. King's during the American civil rights movement, and still continues to do so. Memphis has been recognized as an opportune place for black-owned businesses, and Black Restaurant Week is one of the city's many efforts to raise awareness and support minority-owned eateries.
