The Sister's Uptown Bookstore


Sister's Uptown is a 100% black and family-owned bookstore and community resource center in Washington Heights/Harlem dedicated to nourishing the minds, hearts and souls of the community with present and past works of gifted African American, Latinx, and other great authors and intellectuals.

Its founder, Janifer Wilson, made it her mission to house, present and preserve culture after growing up feeling invisible and not represented in the books she studied.
