Yeah James is an iconic figure in the Book industry.  It is hard to believe it is the ONLY Black owned bookstore in Los Angeles, CA -- a city of more than 400K Black people.... Then again NYC have 5 times that many Black people and only has one general interest Black owned bookstore too (if you don't count church book stores).

 

@Cynique james was the Black Pack Party in Chicago that you attended.
