New Business Model Saves a Kentucky Bookstore

This is good news.  Access to capital is always a problem for Black indie businesses so it is good to see a community step up and support an institution.  The previous owner of Wild Fig, Crystal Wilkinson is an accomplished novelist


@Mel Hopkins, it was refreshing to see read article you linked to reference AALBC as the source of the count of Black owned bookstores. The article reference another article which writes on WUKY's site which says, "Publisher's Weekly reports at least 108 were open in April of this year."


Publishers Weekly is not, nor do they claim to be, the source.  However WUKY attributes PW. This is sloppy journalism at best and racist at worse.  Again I'm glad to see this data correctly credited for change.
