Supporting Indie Bookstores

Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA.

I also encourage you to read the Oprah Magazine article "125 Black-Owned Bookstores in America That Amplify the Best in Literature" by McKenzie Jean-Philippe for links to Black-owned bookstores across the U.S.

Happy reading!

Powell's Books, Beaverton, OR.
