    Black-Owned: The Revolutionary Life of the Black Bookstore is the first full-length book on the history of Black-owned bookstores, and is an expansion of her important article, “Black-Owned Bookstores Have Always Been at the Center of the Resistance:”

    When he wasn’t helping some 600 slaves escape through the Underground Railroad, David Ruggles was running a bookstore. In 1828, Ruggles opened a grocery store in New York City and later, as he became involved in the burgeoning abolitionist movement, opened a reading room and a bookstore for Black Americans. It was the nation’s first Black-owned bookstore.
