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.

We are not just a book store; we are a community resource center for the exchange of information and ideas. Our motto is “Knowledge of Self is the key to Understanding”. We provide an educational, emotional, spiritual and loving environment for a diverse community, where all are welcome.
We like books. We like you. And we’re ready to bring the best diverse books and events to our community. Loyalty was founded by Hannah Oliver Depp, a Black and Queer Bookseller who has spent her career working to diversify the book industry in order for it to better serve the powerful communities of color and queerness. We aim to be the Mid-Atlantic’s neighborhood spot for wonderful books and unique stationery, gifts, and programming. Our staff and our selection highlight the diverse voices and creatives that make our communities great. Our intersectional community is important to our staff, therefore those are the books you’ll find centered in our store, in our programming, and in our promotions. We work to create an inclusive, welcoming environment and provide books and goods for the home because, well, books are home. By creating a team of local vendors and community partners in Washington, DC and Silver Spring, MD that center Black, PoC, and Queer voices we create singular shopping and event experiences.

The store was started by best friends VaLinda Miller and Arrylee Satterfield as a way to spread their love for a good book, to educate, provide a safe space and to give back to their community. All books featured in the store are new. Turning Page celebrated its one year anniversary on June 1, 2020 thanks to support from our wonderful community.
