ABOUT US - OUR MISSION

Preserving Our Historic Literary Writers and Culture

Best Richardson African Diaspora Literature & Culture Museum is a non-profit family, disabled veteran, and woman-owned business that requests your support as we continue  to provide our services to the community.  We opened a rare bookstore in 1997 and began the museum with limited personal funds in 2018. BRADLC is dedicated to the education and enlightenment of diverse audiences of both youth and adults. Our mission is to highlight the literary contributions of people of the African Diaspora whose ancestors were forced into enslavement and forbidden to read or write for centuries under colonization. When their descendants finally were allowed to read, they were segregated and given outdated books and poor structures in which to learn. The effects still exist today, so, we honor our ancestors by showcasing their literature and rich culture in our museum.

 

Our accompanying bookstore sells books of African Diaspora Literature History & Culture,  Children's, Indigenous, Genealogy and Women's Studies. We sell Leather-Bound, 1st Editions, Signed, and Antiquarian.  We feature authentic African jewelry, Gullah Geechee African Cultural Art, Baskets.  Crafts and Representative Dolls .

 

We provide our customers with knowledge of educational artifacts, genealogy classes and informative African Diaspora literary and cultural history.  Our bookstore also carries exceptional used, rare and new books, high-quality gift items, and reliable service.
