Marcus Books, the legendary (one of the oldest Black owned Book stores in the entire US) is in trouble of closure. First started in SF, then opening a branch in Oakland…I along with countless young people of all races trekked to this store, probably first as a child with my mother, then as a college student at SFSU studying Egyptology among other things, and now as a parent/adult when looking for Black picture books.

It should also be noted that Marcus Books is the only book store i know of (and i’ve called many) that has an Extensive collection of Childrens Books, Picture Books, and Comics featuring African and African American children.
