Ujima Magazine has invited Dulce Bread & Book Shop to join in its commitment to pay tribute to the everyday heroes of the Austin community. Through its features, Ujima Magazine profiles the local African American community, its achievements, experiences, and personalities, that make its unique character and best of all, make a real community difference. Dulce Bread & Book Shop will contribute to this mission by sharing its cultural literary treasures with Ujima’s readers. Dulce’s Cultural Reads will feature both adult and children’s cultural books by authors of color. In addition, this literary collaboration will join two cultural advocates from two diverse ethnicities, Damita Miller-Shanklin and Teresa Carbajal Ravet. With the aspiration to bring cultures together by recognizing similarities and sharing differences, Ujima and Dulce strive to create awareness of the valuable opportunities and resources within shared cultures.
