Books & Things

Sister Reda Faard Khalifah was the General Manager of the Health Foods Store operated within Books & Things, which offered a wide variety of grocery items, natural snacks and ice cream.  This store was the fulfillment of a long time dream of Sister Reda's: A Health Food Store in the Black Community.  Sister Reda was known nationally for her articles on health maintenance and was an area manager for Nature's Sunshine Herbs & Vitamins.  Today, her youngest daughter, Nadirah Khalifah continues to carry the torch by educating us on healthy eating through her books, website and social media streams.  She also prepares delicious vegetarian and vegan entrees for guests at the Nat Turner Library during our annual events..
