Being an antiracist reader means not only educating ourselves, but also paying attention to the institutions we support financially. Check out this directory of Black-owned bookstores to get started (you can also use our bookstore finder).
Note: Stores listed with Libro.fm Storefronts below are Libro.fm partner stores—meaning that when you purchase audiobooks from their Libro.fm Storefront, it directly supports their bookstore. The map above shows Black-owned Libro.fm partner stores, while the list below is more comprehensive.
