From Third Place Books on Instagram:
Everything seems trite so I’ll just say: here are a few titles we are not sold out of. Anything we are sold out of but can get for you, we will order. The least that we can do to help the situation is to educate ourselves.

From Island Books on Instagram:
Here are some books we have right now to help you further understand race and racism in America and beyond. It’s important we acknowledge that as a bookstore we are here to educate people. Though things may not touch us directly (we are an all white staff) because of privilege, we want to be inclusive and supportive of those we have the power to lift up, which is part of why we work in a bookstore that supports learning, literacy, and widening of world views, through the expansion of the imagination. We do not want to stay silent in the face of injustice, of the unnecessary death of black people around the country, of the discomfort of our privilege. We are educating ourselves. Here are some books to help you take some steps towards anti-racism. #educatedonthate #requiredreading #essentialreading #blacklivesmatter
