The National Memorial African Bookstore office of Mr. Lewis Michaux.
Mr. Michaux began the bookstore in Harlem in 1939, with only five books, a storefront, and $100—along with a great deal of passion and determination.  He opened the bookstore to sell books by and about black people.
The National Memorial African Bookstore became an intellectual, cultural, and social hub of the community before, during, and after the Civil Rights era, and was frequented by such luminaries as Malcolm X and Langston Hughes before its doors closed in 1975.  [source]

“When you talk about revolution, most people think violence, without realizing that the real content of any kind of revolutionary thrust lies in the principles and the goals that you’re striving for, not in the way you reach them.

When someone asks me about violence, I just find it incredible, because what it means is that the person that is asking that question has absolutely no idea what Black people have gone through, what Black people have experienced in this country, since the time the first Black person was kidnapped from the shores of Africa.”
— Angela Davis, 1972, The Black Power Mixtape (at 17:10)
