OUR MISSION

Our Mission at Bristow Publishing is sharing authentic stories and creating representation with sincerity, authenticity, and originality.

OUR STORY

Founded in 2019, Bristow Publishing is a Bronx-based, Black-owned publishing house founded by Leslie Dangerfield, a lifelong literary enthusiast, freelance writer, and creative soul. This boutique firm is the result of the constant search to find books that unfortunately did not exist.

 

Although independently published books have become more accessible, the quality is often not of the standard one would expect when picking up a title. That’s why Dangerfield began to publish children’s books while developing a diverse and inclusive platform where stories and expertise could be shared.

 

After a visit to the New York Book Con in 2019, long-time acquaintance Askia Fountain joined the team to help Bristow Publishing grow. Fountain offers a unique perspective bringing his experience from the recording industry.

 

This creative duo now publishes trending and enlightening books, ebooks, and audiobooks covering a broad topic range.

Diversity in literature is important not just so we can see protagonists who are like us but so others can see them too.
