Anthony Horatio Harrison is an African-Jamaican, born on February 13, 1933 in Kingston Jamaica, and the founder of the African Bookstore. In the 1990's Anthony Harrison, after working several years as a Precision Machinist, from the United Kingdom to the United States of America, always believed that his children along with his community should constantly engage themselves with constructive information.
Through this firm belief he started to sell books. Anthony Harrison sold books from his vehicle from 1992 until August 1994, after that period he opened the first African Bookstore in Broward County, Florida. The store flourished and therefore with that success he continued to support and encourage economic stability, self-reflection, independence, and empowerment of the community.
The African Bookstore has now taken on a more advanced approach through the new millennium by enlarging their website under new leadership. Anthony Harrison’s daughters who are educators, along with new Technological Executive personnel, are familiar with the dynamics of the Internet age, and so they continue to inspire others to read, and are firm believers in the educational process of self-knowledge and enrichment.
