I don't remember ever seeing a section of any bookstore here devoted to black authors. I know for a fact that Nalo Hopkinson, Steven Barnes, Samuel Delany are in the SF section of my local Chapters/Indigo. I'm not sure where they put Octavia Butler as I haven't seen anything by her on the shelves there recently, but it could simply be that they haven't had anything by her in stock.

Similarly, they seem to keep the LGBT SF (such as it is) with the rest of the SF. The only place I know of where it's separated is in the LGBT bookstores (and they have a pretty pitiful selection - the last time I was at Glad Day, I found that I already owned copies of everything they had).

Where I live (in Atlanta) it's quite normal to find a section of bookshops devoted to "African-American" books.
