I’m sitting in LaUnique Bookstore and African-American Cultural and Arts Center. I love spending time browsing through the many different cultural books that I was not aware of. Especially by vintage books by J. A. Rogers, Carter G. Woodson, Lerone Bennett, Jr. and many others. As a Christian, I’ve alway had conflicts of reading “ancestral” history books, because in the old testament my ancestors were the ones being destroyed by God. Historically my peeps worships lesser gods and idols, and now as a follow of Jesus Christ I only worship the one true and living God.
Nevertheless, as a more mature Christian and avid reader and history lover, I have enough God-centered confidence that allows me to acknowledge my ancestors and their history. I’m a strong believer that without understanding our history, we can never really truly know who we are.
I’ve also purchase books written by Muslim, as well as, Christian authors.
Well back to the books. Here is a list that I’ve purchased since July. I’m thinking about doing book reviews to entice you to buy the books. The website to the bookstore is http://www.launiquebooks.net. The telephone number to the store is (856)338-1958. Mr. Larry Miles is the proprietor andcultural historian.
