About Respect Your Legacy Books

Respect Your Legacy Books is an online, independent bookshop specialising in African and Caribbean literature encompassing history, fiction, biography, poetry, politics, religion, philosophy and more.

Whether deliberate or circumstantial, there is certainly an under representation of the contribution Africa and it’s descendants have made and continue to make to this world and we believe that it is important for this knowledge and awareness to be disseminated to all.

While Respect Your Legacy Books currently operates solely as an online retailer, we aim to open a shop in London in the near future.

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
