100+ Black Owned Bookstores
There are two places that book lovers always visit to get a book to devour: a library or a bookstore. I wanted to speak about bookstores today and give you insight to many bookstores throughout the country but specifically black owned bookstores. Did you know that there are around 20k bookstores in the USA today, according to IBIS World? But, out of 20k bookstores, I was able to find 100+ black owned bookstores that you can shop at either in person, online or both. Bookstores are declining everyday but there is a way to combat that and the key is to purchase from indie bookstores and remember them when you are thinking about where to purchase a new book.
The bookstores will be listed by state and in alphabetical order. If you think of any bookshops that aren't listed, definitely never hesitate to comment one down below or emailing The Seasonal Pages at email@example.com.

I have added over 100 Black owned bookstores across the United States. Some of the bookstores are online based and some are strictly in person but others are both. By clicking on some of the links, you can find out updates to the bookstores to learn more about about. A few of the bookstores had a Facebook page or either not a website. But, I plan on updating as I learn more about Black owned bookstores. If you would like to add your own shop to the list, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
