WHO WE ARE
Janifer P. Wilson
On or about January 1, 2000, I took a leap of faith and brought a positive change to a crumbling community; I opened Sisters Uptown Bookstore and added “Sister’s Uptown Cultural Center” in June 2007. We provide resources for members of the community to nurture their minds, hearts and souls with present and past works of gifted African American authors and other great authors and intellectuals including masters of spoken word.
We have successfully become a positive staple in the community of Washington Heights and recently celebrated 15 years of community service. We are not just a book store; we are a community resource center for the exchange of information and ideas. Our motto is “knowledge is key”. We provide an educational, emotional, spiritual and loving environment for our diverse community where all are welcomed.
