Librarians and Bookstores Support Black Lives Matter

At the beginning of June, Publishers Weekly (PW) put out a list of Black-owned bookstores, noting, “Activists across the United States are encouraging book lovers who want to show support for the ongoing protests against police violence to buy books from black-owned and African American-focused bookstores. PW has compiled a list of black-owned stores for readers to shop at. Any of the following stores would surely appreciate the business.”

Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, Calif., also released a list of Black-owned bookstores, saying, “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.”

In related news, NPR released an interview with Boston librarian Stacy Collins, “How Libraries Are Supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement.”
