Black American publisher forced out of business.

Bronx Village Publishers is going out of business. The African American publisher claims they are being black balled and have lost all access to Black American book retailers. According to Abdul Malik, the publisher, “I have had people call some of our distributors and ask for our latest title (“God Helps Those…” by Alan Cramer). In every case the distributors have claimed they didn’t have any in stock. Yet when I have called the distributors they claim to have the books in stock.

“I first became suspicious when a street vendor appeared nervous and refused to take the book in question. He carried a previous title by us, and promised to take this one. This was after one of the distributors told me he had none of the books in stock when he mistakenly took me for buyer. When I told him I was the publisher he said he made a mistake and had books in stock.

“We will sell the remainders at a 70% non refundable discount and call it quits. The book (God Helps Those ISBN 0975320513) will be available through until our stock is depleted.
