What are the 3 adjectives you would use to describe your bookstore?

Revolutionary, Small, More-than-a-Bookstore

Share a quote from a book or poem that bares your bookstore’s soul.

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

Frederick Douglass

Why was your bookstore founded/what role does it play in the community?

There has been a lack of focus regionally for the topics we love: books on resistance, activism, design, BIPOC history, BIPOC literature, and healing. Our community needs to be able to trust the people who bring these books to them and make space for their whole selves.

Which champion/warrior/wildcat (real or mythological) does your bookstore channel most?

The Modern Black Hierophant

What makes your bookstore unique?

We have a working 1951 large format letterpress in the middle of it. We have hundreds of letterpress prints for sale in our bookstore.

What is something that no one knows about your bookstore?

Our highest and best purpose is to provide knowledge and love to encourage each person to honor their truest self and fight for the freedoms for others to do the same.
