There was a time when major publishers were reluctant to release books written by black authors. Self-publishing, for many, was the only option.

These days, with book sales dwindling and independent book stores closing, is self-publishing still a viable alternative?

For more on the future of black publishing, Farai Chideya talks with Haki Madhubuti, founder of Third World Press one of the oldest, independent black publishers in the United States.

Chideya also speaks with author Quincy Troupe whose works include Miles and Me and The Pursuit of Happyness and Nakea Murray, founder of The Literary Consultant Group. It's an organization that help writers self-publish.
