Our principles

Uplifting Black Consciousness
& Culture

Alkebu-Lan Images seeks to support the local Black community and beyond by sourcing our products where possible from other Black-owned businesses in the spirit of the Kwanzaa principle of Ujima. As a result one can find a wide range of rare books, handmade jewelry, and other items not found in your typical retail establishment. With a focus on sourcing products by Black businesses and for Black people we hope to shine a light on a market that is both under-served and under-valued.
