About Us

World Stage Press is a publishing house originated from Leimert Park and dedicated to the creation and proliferation of African-American Literature.

The World Stage Press’ dedication to the community it serves runs deep. It began as a small publishing arm to literary workshops at the historical World Stage Performance Gallery, founded by icons Kamau Daaood and Billy Higgins.
