New Beacon Books is the first Black-owned bookstore in the UK, specialising in African & Caribbean Literature.
The shop was founded in 1966 by John La Rose and his partner Sarah White, and for over 50 years New Beacon Books has provided poetry, literature, non –fiction, history and children’s books from Africa, Caribbean, Asia, African America, Europe, South America and Britain to its community in Stroud Green and beyond.
Inspired by John La Rose’s political and cultural vision derived from experience in the Caribbean and South America, New Beacon is also an established publishing house that has produced an important body of publications. The bookshop has been at the centre of many ground-breaking political and social projects, organisations and campaigns.
