The Black feminist bookshop: a radical space of resistance, sisterhood and community.

by Dee Creative in London, England, United Kingdom

We did it! Last few days and new stretch target added!!

Amazing supporters, thank you so much for your donations! Your generosity has helped the pop-up to reach AND supersede its £5,000 goal! This is great news and it's all down to you and your belief in the need for a Black feminist bookshop! 

The crowdfunder is now in its last couple of days: it is due to end on Friday 1st March 11:46am. Because it's doing so well, I've decided to add a stretch target, which I know can be reached with your help. The extra money raised will mean that I can do more with the pop-up  - such as buy additional books or run it for longer - so, share, share, share and give it one last big push!! Let's get your family, friends, colleagues, social media followers all donating! I know we can do it!

PS for those of you who offered to donate books or your time, thank you, I'll be in touch soon! For those of you that have books suitable for the bookshop, please donate - the pop-up needs them! You can drop off your books at Housmans Radical Booksellers, Kings Cross or Blackwell's Bookshop, Holborn. Make sure to say that they are for the Black feminist bookshop.

At the moment there are two book donation drop off points but this isn't enough for a city as big as London. So if you are a venue, business or community space that would like to become a book donation drop off point, send an email to this address to discuss further: blackfeministreading@gmail.com

Books to donate - Black feminist books (and books written by Black women in general), books by women of colour, books written by QTIPOC (queer, trans and intersex people of colour) - this includes books written by LGBT+ people of colour that would suit a feminist bookshop, books written for young Black women and girls (11 - 21 years), books written for Black children - all genders - (11 years and under). If you have a book that you think would be suitable for the bookshop and it is not covered in the aforementioned list, send an email to this address with the title, author, isbn number and picture of the book and I will get back to you to let you know if it's suitable for the shop: blackfeministreading@gmail.com
