“When children cannot find themselves reflected in the books they read, or when the images they see are distorted, negative, or laughable, they learn a powerful lesson about how they are devalued in the society of which they are a part.”


-Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop


Black Worldschoolers Mobile Bookstore’s mission is to provide access and awareness to Black stories as well as excitement and engagement around reading. In 2018 we made a collective decision to transition out of conventional schooling to home education.

We immediately and excitedly began searching for resources that reflected the African Diaspora and building our home library. Our growing library full of Black stories primarily by Black authors across all genres increased our son's love for reading. In fact, they became “flashlight under the cover readers.”

While they read out of obligation in school or kept up with popular titles their peers were reading, access to this new world of books shaped their identities as readers and made books enjoyable as well as positively impactful. Witnessing our son's love for reading grow daily caused me to imagine the possibilities for other children. Our mobile bookstore makes Black stories accessible, and our method of delivery makes them irresistible.
