Nationwide --  Imagine a place where lovers of African-American literature and culture can come together and have their needs met. Kizzy's Books & More, founded by entrepreneur Trenessa L. Williams, MBA, DBA, is that place! It's an online bookstore that sells African-American literature and other products that embrace Black culture. The store, named after the character Kizzy from Roots by Alex Haley, is committed to embracing the African-American culture and the joy of reading.

Taking things to the next level

An Indiegogo campaign has been created to raise capital for the initial inventory and point-of-sales system. There are some amazing things planned for this first-of-its-kind brick and mortar storefront.

To find out more about the Indiegogo campaign and/or to make a donation to help Trenessa raise the funds, please visit.

About Kizzy's Books & More
Kizzy's Books & More is an independent bookstore committed to embracing the African-American culture and the joy of reading. Their goal is to offer a trendy yet eclectic bookstore that allows consumers the opportunity to buy African-American products while promoting literacy.

The idea of Kizzy's Books & More was formed back in 2008 when Trenessa noticed that there wasn’t a bookstore that focused on African-American Literature in Orlando, Florida. This discovery began her quest to learn more about the bookselling industry and how to own a bookstore. She began obtaining the necessary training, and this year she decided to step out on faith and turn her dream into a reality.
