PROTESTS & RACE EDUCATION
White people helped Boston's only Black-owned book store break all time sales records recently. The store in Nubian Square mamed Frugal
s Books recieved 10,000 new in orders within weeks after BLACK LIVES MATTER protests began. It should be noted that some largest protest celebrations originated in Nubian Square and went to the Boston Common.
People ordered books by Black authors about Black people. Elsewhere, the white-owned and Jewish-owned books stores in Brookline loaded display windows with Black books and especially books children on the front cover. Yeay! This is a good thing! Black-owned companies in our online Boston Black Business directory received many business leads.
During Boston vibrant June- July public Black Lives Matter awareness and participation period, the Boston Globe newspaper printed its first ever Black news edition for a day and has continued to promote Black-owned companies on its web site. PROTESTERS drove this activity. Yeay You! In June, White Boston began investing in Black Boston in ways it has never done before. The high interest in Black stuff has died way down since June, but its not gone. It will never be gone. AboutBlackBoston.com is very grateful to readers and donors who helped us during that difficult period. Elsewhere in diversity progress, The City of Boston uses the term "BIPOC/ALANNA," a label for Black and Indigeneous People of Color/Asian, Hispanic, Latino and Native Americans? We get it.
