Growing up, Marc Lamont Hill’s Uncle Bobbie taught him the importance of critical literacy, especially as a black man living in the contemporary United States. Today, Lamont Hill is a Temple University professor, CNN commentator, and the owner of Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books in Germantown. Whether you come to sip a specialty coffee or purchase a book by a featured African-American author, you’ll find that the shop is home to a robust community.
