Popular speaker Umar Johnson faces fines over lack of psychology license

A decade ago, he was a regular speaker at Black and Nobel, the black-owned bookstore at Broad and Erie. Hakim Hopkins, Black and Nobel’s owner, lamented Johnson’s recent plight and noted that Johnson doesn’t need a license to deliver his message online.

In a recent YouTube video, he has stated that he grew up in North Philadelphia, near Eighth Street and Susquehanna Avenue. He described a childhood where at least once he stayed in a homeless shelter, and where quite often, he loved watching movies at a neighborhood theater.

    Popular speaker Umar Johnson faces fines over lack of psychology license
    Umar Johnson is taking a break. The popular Philly-bred pundit had just finished a four-city "Kwanzaa tour" in Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and Detroit. He spoke on special education, the black family and what's called black uplift, themes he regularly mines for his massive, 342,000-user Instagram following.

Last of Philly's black-owned bookstores looking for a comeback

Black-owned Black and Nobel at 1409 W. Erie Ave. launched a GoFundMe page earlier this year when owner Hakim Hopkins thought he also might...

    Last of Philly's black-owned bookstores looking for a comeback
    At Hakim's Bookstore in West Philadelphia, there are signs of life for what is believed to be the oldest black-owned bookstore in the country. Only a couple of years ago, the store was near death's door. There is fresh, yellow paint on the walls, brand-new bookshelves, and a newly renovated office space at the back of the store.
