Reading Black Literature

Local book seller shares her list of recommendations of black literature

Books about race and anti-racism dominate the bestseller lists of retail giants. Just take a look at the top 3 best-selling books today on Barnes and Noble’s website. Number one? How to be An Antiracist. So how can books help and which ones should you pick up? Abbigail Glen, Owner of Shelves Bookstore, joined us on QC@3 to talk about what books she recommends to help people understand the issues going on today. She also tells us it’s important for her to represent black authors, because their stories are just as important as other authors. 

Also a big congratulations are in order for Abbigail! She celebrates her one year anniversary on June 8th.
