Last month I had the pleasure of visiting Mahogany Books, DC’s newest Black-owned bookstore. What makes Mahogany books so special is that it is the first time in over twenty years that a bookstore has existed east of the Anacostia River. For those of you not familiar with the neighboorhood dynamics of Washington, DC, Anacostia is an area primarily home to economically poor Black people. Needless to say, the opening of a bookstore here is a community gem.
I went to explore the new bookstore an I’ll definitely be frequenting it. You can watch the review below:
