Due to pandemic and other re-arrangements of the economy, used book sales at Busboys and Poets are suspended. Book carts are still available at We Act Radio, 1918 MLK, SE, and a new Little Free Library is active further south on MLK. Look for additional pop-up stores to come.
A moving event honoring Charnice Milton‘s fourth death anniversary, May 27, 2019, launched the CMCB used book space at Busboys and Poets-Anacostia, 2004 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE. Read about the event at DC Line.
A highlight of the CMCB spaces is a sculpture, by local artists Mercedes, who crafts healing art from bullet casings and other materials once associated with violence.
