August 29 and 30 are Portland Support Black Restaurant Days, a movement begun by Bertha Pearl, a Portlander inspired by Support Black Restaurant Days in San Francisco. The mission of the Portland event is not specifically expressed anywhere, but Pearl has connected the idea of supporting black-owned restaurants with raising awareness for the Black Lives Matter movement.

According to the event page, 4,300 people plan to dine out at black-owned restaurants this weekend. Comments on the page have supported the event with free rides to restaurants and by sharing the news of which restaurants are black-owned.

To help diners join the cause, Portland Support Black Restaurant Days offers the following one-of-a-kind list of black-owned restaurants in Portland:
