Karibu Books in DC to close


I received more than a couple emails about the closing of Karibu Books, an African American bookstore chain here in the Greater Washington, DC area. It's a sad event. The word from the Karibu website:
"After 15 years of service within the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Karibu Books, a Black bookstore chain will be closing its doors. We sincerely thank each and every one of you for your patronage and support. We are optimistic that our mission to empower and educate through a comprehensive selection of books by and about people of African descent will continue to resonate within the communities we proudly served."
