If you’re planning a holiday tour of Savannah, there are several black-owned businesses that you should explore. The Savannah Taste Experience offers food tours that showcase the city’s diverse culinary scene, including stops at black-owned restaurants like The Little Crown and Bowtie Barbecue Co. You can also visit The Village Craftsmen, a gift shop that features handmade items from local artisans, or The Book Lady Bookstore, which specializes in new and used books by African American authors.

What to Eat

If you’re looking for traditional Gullah holiday dishes to try, consider Savannah Red Rice, Okra Soup, and Hoppin Johns with Field Peas. These dishes are part of the Gullah Geechee cuisine, which is a blend of African, European, and Native American influences and is commonly found in the Lowcountry region of the southeastern United States. Savannah Red Rice is a tomato-based rice dish that often includes shrimp or sausage, while Okra Soup is a hearty soup made with okra, tomatoes, and various meats. Hoppin Johns with Field Peas is a dish of peas and rice that is said to bring good luck in the new year. Don’t want to make these dishes yourself? Check out the inspiration from Savannah Native, Chef Gina Willis who is a proud Savannah State University alum.
