Be sure to check out the legendary Paschal’s Restaurant known for specials like their signature fried chicken, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, collard greens and cornbread. Paschal’s is a fixture in Black history and served as an unofficial meeting place for Civil Rights leaders back in the 1960s.
Imagine figures like Dr. King, Stokely Carmichael, Fannie Lou Hamer and their many other cohorts strategizing their next moves as they chowed down on the restaurant’s specials, which haven’t changed all that much today.
Finally, enjoy some of the historic eateries Atlanta has to offer like the Sweet Auburn Curb Market (locals just call it the Curb Market), where you can sample the tasty wares of over 30 local vendors selling fresh produce, soul food, Caribbean food, and much more.
Happy Black History Month!
