The Bookstore as Radical Space in Black and Brown Communities
Hosted by Chaun Webster
Bookstores have been a space of radical cultural dissemination, community development and building power in Black and Brown communities. From Marcus Books, The African Memorial Bookstore or the more recent La Casa Azul, these bookstores are served and are serving as a space of high touch interacting and are third places for communities that severely under resourced. The power of the bookstore in the Black community has not been highly unlike the power of the Black press, in that it has served to reshape the public discourse surrounding Black bodies and assert a radical subjectivity. This program would be a chance to talk about this history, the project of literacy as it has been both a project of colonialism and liberation in Black and Brown communities and the importance that this history bears and where we are today.
