Starting with just a table and select merchandise, Hakim Hopkins founded Black and Nobel fifteen years ago. Over the years Hakim has cultivated the Black and Nobel brand by servicing the community from its base in Philadelphia. Black and Nobel’s impact has now expanded to reach communities throughout the globe.
Black and Nobel provides a wide-array of services including, but not limited to: shipping books to prisons, hosting community-oriented lectures, presenting Open Mic Showcases for independent artists and even delivering fresh water to residents of Flint, Michigan.

Given the economic climate in recent years, management at Black and Nobel has found it necessary to adjust their strategy in order to continue to serve the community. Part of that strategy includes empowering younger team members to use their talents to increase Black and Nobel’s internet presence. In addition, Black and Nobel plans to acquire a tour bus to facilitate face-to-face community outreach in neighborhoods and schools across the nation.

Regardless of where you live, your support is needed to make sure Black and Nobel can continue to serve YOU, YOUR family and YOUR community. Any donation is helpful and greatly appreciated!

Black and Nobel is MORE THAN A BOOK STORE!
It is a sanctuary, a school, safe-haven and community hub where like-minded folks meet to collaborate for empowering themselves and the various communities they hail from. We as the creative are joining together to ensure that Black and Nobel can continue to serve as many individuals and families as possible for many years to come. Thank you for your continued support in helping reach that goal!

Tonite a meeting was held. A meeting of African American celebrities at a private location & things were discussed..... Everyone shared their objectives, opinions & views on political, non-political & everyday issues that have plagued us as a people for hundreds of years...... Well, this time we're collectively taking a different approach at burying these problems once & for all. This is a fight for everyone..... Not just blacks, but everyone.... & all races, ethnicities, cities, states, countries & continents were brought up & we had a very peaceful meeting where voices from all entertainment groups were heard & no leaf was left unturned.... We as a HUMAN RACE were all affected with the past weeks tragedies & we ALL want immediate change... So gather as you may, in groups or movements of your choice/race or gather diversified & have theses conversation.... They are all important. Keep an open dialogue with one another & that will resonate in the lives that we are all trying to save going forward, especially OUR YOUTH !!! WE ALL MATTER & tonite we took another stab at the end goal & that is to BETTER THIS WORLD NOW, not just for the moment but to make an impact that will drive out NEGATIVITY & welcome LOVE worldwide...... The haters, naysayers & negative minds will exist... They too will be reformed as time progresses & change presents itself on a world scale.... One day at a time my people..... & as we all prepare ourselves for tomorrow... I will part by saying, I LOVE YOU ALL... Rest well ✌🏾️ #HUNT #heritage #naturalhairdaily #Blackowned #blackbusiness #melanin #blacklivesmatter #blackisbeautiful #blackandproud #africanamericanow #blacklove #naturalhair #blackexcellence #blackcouples #blackwomen #blackmen #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic #king #queen

Some people forget that love is
tucking you in and kissing you 'Good night'
no matter how young or old you are
Some people don't remember that
love is
listening and laughing and asking
questions
no matter what your age
Few recognize that love is
commitment, responsibility
no fun at all
unless
Love is
You and me

Bishop Curry, a fifth grader, has invented something called the Oasis, a clever little gadget that monitors the temperature inside the car. Once it gets to a certain level, the device emits cool air while simultaneously alerting parents and authorities via an antenna. The idea for the Oasis came to Bishop after he learned that his neighbour's 6-month-old infant had died from being in an overheated car, and although he only has a 3-D clay model of the device at the moment, he and his father have so far managed to raise over $24,000 for their invention on GoFundMe. The money will go towards manufacturing the device as well as securing the patent for it, so if you haven't already, head on over to their fundraising page and help to bring this brilliant project to life.
