Rapper and Community Activist Noname follows in the footsteps of her mom by opening a Free Bookstore in Chicago

Noname an artist and activist has gone a step further by making her bookstore free to the community.  

In 2019, Noname started a book club to bring forth the voices of people of color and those from the LGBTQ+ community. In addition to her own book club, she encourages readers to support Black-owned bookstores. Her website provides a directory to most of the Black-owned bookstores around the country.  

Noname’s book club has grown since then and has partnerships with libraries in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Oakland.  The official headquarters will open in Chicago this month and will be free to the public. People can support the new storefront by donating through Patreon for as little as a dollar a month.
