Critical Consciousness Reading

Critical Consciousness Reading


A curated reading list to support critical thinking and consciousness in light of the current humanitarian crisis in America.

Sister's Uptown Bookstore is presently the oldest black and family-owned bookstore and community cultural center in Washington Heights/Harlem dedicated to nourishing the minds, hearts and souls of the community with present and past works of gifted African American, Latinx, and other great authors and intellectuals.  

Celebrating it's 20th year, the bookstore has become a hub for literature, art, culture, selflove and community. And with every book purchase, 100% of the proceeds are going directly towards keeping this amazing community gem standing for another 20 years! #StandWithSisters.
