4 out of 5 stars

Situated in a beautiful 1930s home across the street from Germantown’s historic Market Square, this bookstore and café boasts an itinerary of readings, movie screenings and cultural celebrations, such as film screenings and holiday gatherings. Bookshelves are stocked with a selection of black literature—works by James Baldwin, New York Times best-selling novelist E. Lynn Harris and YA newcomer Angie Thomas—and educational page-turners in the history, politics and economics sections. The cozy café side offers La Colombe coffee drinks and a selection of teas, pastries and ready-to-go soups and salads. The space has several rooms and plenty of leather couches on which to stretch out. You’re welcome to bring a laptop and tune out on your headphones, but it wouldn’t hurt to unplug and make a new friend over coffee and a great book.

Read more about the story behind the bookstore, which was opened by CNN and Fox commentator Marc Lamont Hill, here.
