To dismiss the impact the know Bookstore has had on this community would be a travesty that business grew from just a bookstore to an institution.Some of the most accomplished historians in the world have lectured in that building,and I am not exagerating. From Dillard street to Fayetville street the Know has atracted intellectuals from all persuasions. If the goal is to improve the cultual awareness and the arts in this area of Durham the Know Bookstore should definately be in the equation. Myself personally have benifited greatly from the know, as a young college student in the 70's, there was no place in Durham that I could go t0o find sources that could doucument the greatness of the African contribution to world civilization. So many students of that era loved the Know. So take it from someone who have seen the rise in cultural and historicol awareness in that community, this awakening can be attributed largely to the Know insttution. I encourage all parties involved to redirect their efforts ,and concentrate on the very thing that been working for so long. Do not let history repeat itself again in terms of Aficans not being able to collectively own our own institutions. Save the Know!Thanks, Alex Gaddy
