EFFORT TO STIMULATE LOCAL ECONOMY- The Shreveport-Bossier African American Chamber of Commerce has organized a special event focusing on local Black restauranteurs  and  promoting their cuisine.  Shreveport-Bossier’s Black Restaurant Week kicked off yesterday and according to Brittany Dunn – Chairwoman of the Shreveport-Bossier African American Chamber, the  goal is to help stimulate local business.       

"We still have a lot of African-American minority businesses, especially restaurants that are still  struggling due to Covid-19 and we really want to make an economic impact in their businesses this week," Dunn said."
