At West Margin Press, we value the gifts, talents, contributions, and lives of our Black friends and colleagues. To honor this belief, we’ve compiled a list of bookshops in our home state of California owned by people of color and that could use our support during this complicated time.
These pillars of the community need our help, be it through donations, gift card purchases, or phone orders. If you’re not in California, we encourage you to reach out to local, Black-owned bookshops in your area and ask for ways you can get help, too.
If we are missing any bookstores from the list above, please reach out on social media @westmarginpress so we can continue adding to the list.
And don’t forget to check out the rest of the blog where we have some helpful ways you can manage stress, as well as where to start learning about racial justice.
