C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

This is the story of a Black female who was not on drugs, didn't prostitute for a living, or participate in any number of typical negative images that America seems to feel we must have in order for our story to be important enough to be told! So begins: A humorous look at life from a woman who has made errors in her life but survived with her sanity intact. Beatrice Joyner looks at her life objectively and without bitterness as she shares her wisdom. She reminds us to celebrate our victories as we climb the mountain of life giving us survival techniques while exploring the joys of living. Her wisdom comes across with humor and graciousness as she makes you realize you aren't alone in this crazy world.
