In literature, there are excessive negative images and destructive messages being marketed towards and about the African American community in the book publishing industry. These messages contribute to low self-esteem and negative self-image that disempowers many from achieving optimal community growth and development. A.I.C Publications was created as a social venture business to address these issues.
We focus on highlighting individual potential towards empowering the African American communities to engineer a social, political and economic sense for their success and upward mobility. We take real community problems and issues, presented in fiction, offer solutions for them while providing the positive end result of success.
Our literature will focus on adult nonfiction, young adult fiction, and children’s picture book stories. We highlight the unique and diverse experiences of Blacks in America. We intend to promote positive advancement and achieve an increased literacy rate.
