This bot will help you find a book written by a Black author

If you want to support Black business

owners and Black creators right now

but don’t know where to start.

a developer named Liz has created

a bot that will help you both find

a book by a Black author...

and locate a Black-owned bookstore

that is currently selling it.

To get a recommendation, all you have

to do is text the number (409) 404-0403.

A bot will then help you pick

out a book written by a Black

author based on genre and...

link you to a Black-owned bookstore where you can purchase the suggested title.

Based on screenshots of interactions

with the bot, current genre

options include anti-racism.

children, sci-fi/fantasy, short stories/essays, literary fiction and poetry, though Liz

plans on adding more soon
