Black World Books, a store that focuses on black literature and aims to be a cultural center, will open in Killeen, Tex., on October 15, according to KWTX. Owner Maeva Jackson told the station that she wants to help people better understand African-American history and culture.
The store will offer more than 600 books and hold story times and creative workshops. It'll also stock African art and artifacts, incense and oils and more.
Jackson added that the feeling of community is important. "That genuine let's get to know each other, what's going on, let's build. And so you won't get that from Amazon or those big book stores."
