Frugal Bookstore

Updated: Dec 7, 2022

I had the pleasure of doing a Shared Sisterhood book reading, discussion and signing at Frugal Bookstore in Roxbury, MA.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Frugal is the ONLY Black-owned bookstore in Boston? That's right, the entire city of Boston has ONE Black-owned bookstore. This is despite the fact that Boston has approximately 650,000 residents and just under a quarter of the population identify as Black or African-American. I wanted my first in-person #SharedSisterhood book event to be at Frugal and it was a smashing success. Despite the rain, the Shared Sisterhood community showed up, bought books and engaged in an energetic conversation about Shared Sisterhood.

Part of Shared Sisterhood is collective action. If that resonates with you and you like to read books, please consider buying your books at Frugal Bookstore: In full transparency, I do not gain a single cent from recommending Frugal. I believe in what they do and part of Shared Sisterhood is being thoughtful about how we can act to support each other. Want to help? Here are three things that you can do:

Three ways that you can help
  1. Support local Black-owned businesses, like Frugal Bookstore. Not just in words, please buy their products or services!

  2. Buy your copy of Shared Sisterhood and join the movement today

  3. Subscribe to my newsletter at to receive updates and news

Here are just a few pictures of the event

I read a section from Shared Sisterhood: "A Black Woman's Journey to Shared Sisterhood" and shared personal challenges that I confronted when building equitable systems.

We discussed Dig, Bridge and Collective Action and shared ideas on how to execute them in the workplace.

The Shared Sisterhood Community is deep and rich. People from all walks of life are joining the #SharedSisterhood movement. Join us!
