6th Year Anniversary Celebration

6th Year Anniversary

Eyeseeme African American Children's Bookstore is Celebrating it's 6th Year Anniversary & You Are Invited


About This Event

When we opened Eyeseeme African American Children's Bookstore in 2015 the concept of a brick and mortar, black owned, independent bookstore, which featured multicultural children’s books, was unheard-of, especially in the age of Amazon. But our mission to make sure that ALL children can see themselves in the literature that they read, was too important to ignore.

It has now been six (6) years and we have grown year over year and have been able to reach and enhance the lives of more and more children. We even made it through COVID due to community support.

Join Us as we celebrate and say THANK YOU!

Saturday, June 19th

12noon - 4pm

PLUS: A special Juneteenth Presentation at 7pm

As an ER physician and professor in academic medicine, Uché Blackstock is profoundly aware of the systemic barriers that Black patients and physicians continue to face. Dr. Blackstock’s memoir, “Legacy,” is a journey through the critical intersection of racism and healthcare. “Legacy” is Dr. Blackstock’s odyssey from child to medical student to practicing physician—to finally seizing her own power as a health equity advocate against the backdrop of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
