I plan to attend this event.  Black Classic Press is one of THE most conscious businesses I've seen.  An example of an entity that can be both conscious and profitable over the long term.

I attended this event it was great.  The love and admiration for both Coates (publisher of BCP) and Walter Mosley was palpable


The event just reinforced why I will always respect and admire Walter Mosley:

In the mid 1990’s Walter DECIDED he would support an independently owned Black Press.  Walter, who can publish with major publisher, has published three books with Black Classic Press over the years.  The first book GONE FISHING’ sold almost 100,000 copies.


This video from the event describes their relationship


This video also features; the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (I'm in a shot with her below); author Walter Mosley; and BCP publishers, W. Paul Coates and Natalie Stokes-Peters
