Stop by Urban Reader for a place to sip on your menu selection while browsing Black authors at the city’s first Black-owned bookstore. Shop owner Sonyah Spencer saw a lack of space dedicated exclusively to Black intellectual thought and inspiring young readers and chose to make a solution by opening her doors. She offers curatorial services and specializes in finding the right titles for any reader and sourcing books even though they may not be in her current stock.
