20 Publications from Writers and Readers Publishing an Imprint of Writers & Readers Publishing
Writers & Readers Publishing was based in Harlem, and founded by Glenn Thompson.
“Glenn Thompson was an exemplary Black publisher. He viewed books as weapons of liberation and saw his task as that of a soldier, arming the people to free themselves. He chose to publish great books about people of African descent that helped to define the reality of the Black experience. He also chose to publish outstanding books that redefined the White experience from the perspectives of those who were oppressed and dispossessed by it--and he did so in subtle, subversive, but often comical ways.” —Paul Coates
