We’re out of office today to honor Juneteenth, which Big Spoon Roasters recognizes as a holiday for our team and company.
156 years ago, on June 19, 1865, emancipation of enslaved people reached Texas, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. While this day commemorates a remarkable milestone in American history, there is still much to be done.
We believe in supporting organizations who progress equal rights and emancipation in the present day and have compiled a list of several resources below, both local and national, who do important, meaningful work on this front. We also believe in uplifting traditionally underrepresented chefs and individuals who are innovators in the industry—these cookbooks are wonderful places to start and learn more about the joy and rich history of African American cuisine.
