David Lammy – 2022 Comments on New Beacon Bookshop

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Foreign Secretary, on 1 January 2022.

This New Year let’s save New Beacon Bookshop. The UK’s first specialist black bookshop, it would be a tragedy if it had to close after 55 years. A loss not just for the black community but our countries collective history. Independent bookshops are vital.
