Third World Press (a project of Third World Press Foundation) is an independent, non-profit publisher and the oldest Black publishing company in the world. Every dollar we take in from book sales and donations goes directly to support our project of publishing books for the continuation of a strong Black literary tradition. That project has never been more necessary or more urgent. We need your help to continue to do the work.

Our major outreach programs include: TWP Prison Library Outreach Program, Emerging Author Series (for poets and novelists), Project SANKOFA, Jambo, Watoto! Children’s Book Club, and the Poets and Writers Support System, book donations for universities and K12 schools.

These (and other) community engaged initiatives and associated activities are an extension of TWP’s outreach for almost 60 years.

TWP needs your help to meet the growing demand for radical voices, histories, spaces, and perspectives that can rise to the challenges of our times.

Thank you for reading and sharing our books, and for your generous support!
