About the event

The San Antonio African American Book Festival is held every year, on the Last Saturday of February at Second Baptist Community Center (3310 E. Commerce Street) right next door to the historic G.W. Carver Branch Library in San Antonio, Texas. This Annual Black History Month event was created to celebrate the Power of Black Literature, reinforce the fact that Representation Matters and to proudly Encourage Black Economics. Literacy improves our lives by expanding the capabilities that reduce poverty by increasing the likelihood of success in educational and career endeavors, which have proven to have positive effects on a community's health and overall quality of life. Literacy empowers and liberates people.

Did you know that Enslaved Africans in Texas were finally freed on June 19, 1865 (Juneteenth) just 158 years ago? Prior to that, it was ILLEGAL for African Americans to read or write and was punishable up to death! Now, African American Book Festivals can be found in every major city throughout Texas. Celebrate our Progress and Join the Movement by becoming a Participant, Sponsor, Vendor or Supporter of San Antonio's very own African American Book Festival.
