I've had some great experiences in this store over the years, including a great public talk a couple of years ago, it obviously needs to exist. Help if you can. Thank you.
Revolution Books has signed a lease for a new storefront and is making a big move to Harlem. Now the fight is on to ensure that the most radical bookstore on the planet re-opens in September. Donations to this $30,000 Indiegogo drive will go towards the immediate expenses of renovating the new space at 437 Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox Avenue). This Indiegogo campaign is part of Revolution Books’ larger multi-pronged $150,000 emergency fundraising effort, which includes reaching out to people with more money for big donations, and organizing fundraising events.
Already, hundreds of friends of RB have made donations of $5 to $5000. But re-opening Revolution Books depends on hundreds more contributing. You. Be part of saving this unique bookstore that is at the center of the movement for revolution. This is about changing everything.
Revolution Books fills a great need
Revolution Books is a bookstore for the whole world.
An epidemic of police murder of innocent Blacks and Latinos … 2.3 million in US prisons... a global war on women ... endless US Wars for Empire … immigrants demonized and worse... the planet's air, water, and land destroyed by the ravages of this system.
This is why Revolution Books is needed more than ever: RB is the place where people come from all over the world to find the books and the deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different way the world could be. Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary, Revolution Books is at the center of building a movement for revolution.
What will happen at the new Revolution Books
This new, relocated Revolution Books will be filled with people of all nationalities and ages, wrangling with the biggest questions facing humanity – getting into the poetry, novels, history, philosophy, science that fill the shelves, as well as provocative children's books that promote values of cooperation and understanding. The intellectual and cultural life at Revolution Books is marked by a critical thinking like nowhere else.
