From Our Editors

Self-described as “the oldest black bookstore in the country”, Marcus Book Stores remains as vital as ever. The narrow storefront in the Fillmore has seen more than half a decade of business come through its wood and glass front door, and has long been home to student pamphleteers and a strong activist tradition. While time has largely quieted the colorful shop, the long-running bookstore remains a must for any book tour author from across the African American diaspora. Speakers and patrons have included James Baldwin, Maya Angelou, August Wilson, Bell Hooks, Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey, as well as hundreds of fledgling authors chronicling the African American experience. A stop into Marcus reveals a calm, intelligent oasis amid a neighborhood in perpetual flux.
