Afrocentric Bookstore
Ranked #198 of 294 Shopping in Chicago
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Don't know if this place is even open anymore or not. If not I understand why. My Wife & I went into this store (we happen to be Caucasian) & it was like that scene in Animal House where all the white guys go into the black bar.

This is one of the greatest bookstores in the city. The owners are knowledgeable and helpful. The cultural atmosphere is great. I remember when they were a small store in the back of a store. They have come a long way. Support this valuable addition to the city. When I come home to Chicago to visit, I have to get Garrett's popcorn, Harold's Chicken and check and see whats new at the Afrocentric Bookstore.
