Why doesn’t this have more notes? When i went to nyc last week the only two black bookstores I found online had closed their doors in 2010 & 2012. We have to do a better job of supporting black businesses. So many businesses in black neighborhoods aren’t even black owned to begin with! The ones that are- need us to be there. Black bookstores have books written by black authors that you wouldn’t be able to buy anywhere else and a lot of them have workshops and events specifically for us. Barnes & Noble and Amazon ain’t here for us like that
San Francisco’s Marcus Bookstore/Bop City building, the nation’s oldest Black bookstore, is in danger of being SOLD. We’re asking you donate $20 or more and then help 10 others to do the same. Join the community and buy back Marcus Bookstores and KEEP IT LIT as a beaming source of knowledge and awareness.
