Juneteenth Texas Heritage: Houston Native, Kaylon Beck of Beck&Call Hospitality

Juneteenth Texas Heritage: Houston Native, Kaylon Beck of Beck&Call Hospitality

Kaylon Beck of Beck&Call Hospitality

Southern Belle Kaylon Beck knows the importance of Southern hospitality as a native Houstonian who loves everything about events, food, and travel. She attended the University of Houston Hilton College & received her MBA graduate from HBCU Howard University School before launching Beck&Call Hospitality. Kaylon wants to redefine hospitality through a cultural lens. She shares her love for Juneteenth, how she entertains for the holiday, and shares what she loves about the new Simon & Schuster Book Watermelon and Red Birds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations by Nicole A. Taylor

How do you celebrate Juneteenth?

Kaylon Beck – Growing up, my family never really celebrated the Juneteenth Holiday in Houston. When I was old enough to learn the history of Juneteenth, I started to wonder why it wasn’t celebrated more in Texas and if it was, why was it not advertised and promoted through local media outlets.  It wasn’t until I moved to Washington DC for graduate school in 2017 that I started to notice more cultural celebrations, especially for Juneteenth. Since moving back to Houston in 2019 and starting Beck&Call Hospitality in 2020, I wanted to create cultural experiences that people could engage in such as planning an inaugural Juneteenth dinner sponsored by Ciroc and planning a Juneteenth Pop-Up Market at Emancipation Park last year. Both events were a huge success and I am looking forward to hosting more events like these in the future! 

Juneteenth Dinner by Beck&Call Hospitality

What do you love about celebrating Juneteenth?

Kaylon Beck – Over the past few years, Juneteenth celebrations have grown in Texas. Galveston has always hosted annual events but not on a large scale. With this year being the 150th commemoration of the now Federal Holiday, I am excited that Emancipation Park will be hosting a weekend full of events to include concerts with Frankie Beverly Feat. Maze and The Isley Brothers, a local vendor pop-up and grant opportunities for small businesses. I am hoping that the success and momentum from this year’s event will continue in future years.

Favorite Black-owned food brands or restaurants in Texas?

Kaylon Beck – Brands- Savannah Rose Sweet Tea Punch  My favorite Black owned restaurants are: Davis St. at Hermann Park, The Breakfast Klub, Sunshine’s Vegetarian Deli and Health Food Store, Frenchy’s Chicken


Recipe for Strawberry Lemonade in Watermelon & Red Birds Cookbook

What’s your favorite recipe from Watermelon and Red Birds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations by Nicole A. Taylor, and why? 

Kaylon Beck – Juneteenth celebrations include rejoicing over red drinks and comfort food. The  recipes we chose were the strawberry lemonade, peanut butter whoopie pies and sour cream and chive cornbread. Strawberry lemonade is my favorite red drink and something I get at every restaurant – especially if it is made fresh. Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies reminded me of celebrating our history and commemorating our african american inventors such as George Washington Carver. I thought it would be great to try a new recipe to add to our favorites. Lastly, I love cornbread! It was only right to try this delicious recipe that I believe goes with any soul food meal.
