Zenat Begum Is Redefining What A Coffee Shop Can Be — And The Community It Serves

  • April 29, 2021

Founded in 2016, Playground Coffee Shop in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, is much more than a coffee shop. It supports artists from marginalized communities through a radio network and a bookshop selling books and art. A nonprofit, Playground Youth, runs free or donation-based classes on a variety of topics including poetry, sewing, health care access and voter registration. Pre-pandemic, the shop hosted lots of these classes and other community events, like art fairs, open mic nights and film screenings.
