One of the oldest black-owned bookstores in the nation has been evicted from its longtime home in a historic San Francisco neighborhood.
The bookstore, which emerged as a pillar in the black community since its opening in the area once nicknamed "The Harlem of the West," celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010.
Black community leaders say the city, which has seen nearly a 40 percent decrease in its African-American population between 1990 and 2010, should help.
The Rev. Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco NAACP, told the San Francisco Examiner on Friday that it's another example of how blacks are treated in the city.
