About New Beacon Books
New Beacon Books was founded in 1966 by John La Rose and his partner Sarah White and was the UK’s first black publisher, specialist bookshop and international book distributor. For over 50 years New Beacon Books has made available to Britain and its communities poetry, literature, non –fiction, history and children’s books from Africa, Caribbean, Asia, African America, Europe, South America and Britain.
A few years ago, it seemed as if the independent bookstore was forced to close its doors. But this was luckily averted after a successful crowd funding campaign and support from the community
