A Home for Harriett’s Bookshop

My friends,

I do not want to be a slave nor a sharecropper. No one does. As you may or may not know, we rent the space at Harriett’s Bookshop from a woman who decided to give us a chance when no one else would.

However our lease is up in JULY and instead of renewing it for another 2 years, wed’d prefer to OWN our own building for Harriett’s Bookshop.

As it stands, I am a modern day sharecropper bringing energy and investing money in a location that I cannot pass down to my children.

But we can change that.

The new permanent location would give us a mission focused bookshop with an 1800s residential feel that includes multiple floors of private book nooks, indoor/outdoor green space, meeting rooms, and a state of the art third floor apartment which will be used to house a visiting rotation of authors, artists, and activists.

With your donation, our monument to Harriett Tubman will be a permanent staple in the community and our impact will be felt for generations. 

We appreciate your contribution from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you and Ase.
