If you’re planning to visit Mississippi, check out Natchez, the oldest city on the Mississippi River. The nods to Black history are inescapable. For cultural excursions, the Natchez Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Civil Rights sites offer a grand educational experience. While in Natchez, Mississippi, check out these three Black-owned businesses.

Mississippi Black Businesses

Rolling River Reloaded

When it comes to decadent, flavorful food, Rolling River Reloaded doesn’t miss. Husband and wife duo Maurice Fudge and Robbie Cade-Fudge opened the doors of their restaurant in 2021. In a short time, it has made quite a statement.

The restaurant puts unique spins on existing dishes. With this in mind, try the jambalaya seafood egg rolls. Pair these with other knockout appetizers, like the chili cheese fries and fried pickles. If you still have an appetite, try the pork chops, shrimp and grits, or the catfish, which can be fried or grilled.

Rolling River Reloaded offers take away and catering for special events.

Natchez Manor

Owned by Eric Berry, Natchez Manor is a historic bed and breakfast. There are fourteen rooms, each with a unique theme and modern amenities. The Southern Bistro offers an extensive menu, featuring smoked brisket, shrimp and grits and more.

Concord Quarters

Concord Quarters is another historic bed and breakfast. The property is perched on beautiful grounds, ideal for small scale gatherings of all kinds.

Owners Deborah and Gregory Cosey are transparent about Concord’s past. By shedding light on its former purpose as a slave dwelling, they hope to educate guests and encourage compassion. Concord Quarters is now the only listing of its kind in Mississippi on the National Register of Historic Places.
