My mom raised me on Black books—reading Black authors, reciting Black poems, and genuinely thinking Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou were my aunties.
My love for reading and Blackness never waned. In a way, I became my mother as I encouraged anyone who would listen to pick up a Black book. New or vintage. Acclaimed or obscure. All Black books are Good Books.
Good Books is an online and pop-up bookstore curated by me and my mom. It marries our two loves—books and Black folks. From Toni Morrison to Tupac Shakur, we pay homage to Blackness through literature.
We’re a mother-daughter duo. We’re an online and pop-up book shop. We’re so excited to be here.
Good Books is our love letter to our community, to Blackness, to you. We’re based in Atlanta, GA, but we look forward to sending book mail to folks all over the U.S.
Name of Business: Good Books
