New Orleans Community Book Center 

In New Orleans we visited the Community Book Center, which is an Afro-centric book store that also offers a space for community events and gatherings, and even has apartments on the second level that it can rent out. They recognize the importance of community and of reading books that reflect a person’s experiences.

The Community Book Center had this sign hanging on their bathroom door. It serves as a reminder of the very recent history of lawful segregation in this country.
