Strive Publishing is a social enterprise focused on community collaboration in centering Black voices and closing the representation gap in the book publishing industry. We began by publishing children’s books and have moved toward selling books in all genres, written by local Black authors that are traditionally published as well as independently published. Our brand new bookstore is in the Sistah Co-op located within the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis. Customers will enjoy a unique shopping experience in a beautiful space that includes Black books, clothes, jewelry, bags, and body products. The Strive Bookstore is also a host for books launches, author visits, writing workshops, and other exciting literary events.
