Owner Dionne Sims said, "have you ever wanted a bookstore but the idea of scouting locations, fundraising/applying for funds, building out a retail space from scratch, curating (by hand) an opening inventory of 2,000 titles, and doing grassroots marketing for two years sounds like a lot of work? yes? might I point you in the direction of a completely set up, established, thriving, well-loved bookstore in the heart of the capital city of Minnesota? Black Garnet Books! your community bookstore featuring books by BIPOC authors and illustrators!"
