African American bookselling exists in a literary space just outside of academia where Pan-Africanism, the quest to study black history and promote literacy within the African-American community, converge.  This talk will discuss the history of Karibu Books, the importance of black bookstores, and the dynamics of African-American literature within "the market economy of blackness."

Come hear this lecture by Professor Hoke S. Glover III of Bowie State University's Department of English and Modern Languages.
