As Ramunda Young greeted customers at the grand opening of Mahogany Books in Southeast D.C. on Saturday, a man walked in and started to cry.

Young asked him if he was OK, and he told her what brought him to tears.

“I’ve never seen so many black books,” Young said the black man in his 50s told her.

She had tears in her eyes too as she told the story later Saturday.
