Children and their parents can see and interact with historical documents at Liberation Station, Raleigh’s first Black-owned children’s bookstore. Those include handwritten letters between Frederick Douglass and a Baltimore bookstore owner as well as first edition signed copies of banned books by such authors as James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler, Langston Hughes, Zora Neal Hurston and Bell Hooks. Beginning June 1, customers will be able to sign up for time slots online.
Also on Sunday, Raleigh historian Carmen Cauthen and Barbara Allen, the sixth-generation granddaughter of Sojourner Truth, the American abolitionist, women’s rights activist and former slave, will be signing books.
