Starting with just a table and select merchandise, Hakim Hopkins founded Black and Nobel fifteen years ago. Over the years Hakim has cultivated the Black and Nobel brand by servicing the community from its base in Philadelphia. Black and Nobel’s impact has now expanded to reach communities throughout the globe.
Black and Nobel provides a wide-array of services including, but not limited to: shipping books to prisons, hosting community-oriented lectures, presenting Open Mic Showcases for independent artists and even delivering fresh water to residents of Flint, Michigan.
Given the economic climate in recent years, management at Black and Nobel has found it necessary to adjust their strategy in order to continue to serve the community. Part of that strategy includes empowering younger team members to use their talents to increase Black and Nobel’s internet presence. In addition, Black and Nobel plans to acquire a tour bus to facilitate face-to-face community outreach in neighborhoods and schools across the nation.
Regardless of where you live, your support is needed to make sure Black and Nobel can continue to serve YOU, YOUR family and YOUR community. Any donation is helpful and greatly appreciated!
Black and Nobel is MORE THAN A BOOK STORE!
It is a sanctuary, a school, safe-haven and community hub where like-minded folks meet to collaborate for empowering themselves and the various communities they hail from. We as the creative are joining together to ensure that Black and Nobel can continue to serve as many individuals and families as possible for many years to come. Thank you for your continued support in helping reach that goal!
