Black-Owned Bookstores

We appreciate the large amount of orders for anti-racism books that we have received! Thank you so much for the support! But we also encourage you to purchase anti-racism books, or ANY books for that matter, from Black-owned bookstores.This ensures the money you are spending on anti-racist learning goes towards supporting Black communities. Below is a list of such bookstores. Please email us with any corrections or additions. Thank you!
