Meet Charles Hannah, co-owner of Third Eye Books

Charles Hannah and his wife Michelle Lewis are the co-owners of Third Eye Books, Portland's only Black-owned bookstore.  Charles shares what motivated the couple to open a bookstore at a time when independent stores are challenged by mega-sellers like Amazon.  He expresses appreciation for veteran bookseller and Black Book Talk co-host O.B. Hill who inspired him to follow in his path.  

Third Eye's philosopy:

"As a proud 100% Black owned and operated business, we believe in practicing cooperative economics by giving back to the community and supporting community based organizations that uplift and empower Portland residents."
