The Lake Barcroft Anti-Racist Book Club focuses specifically on learning from books and combating racism. Much of what we learn will be uncomfortable and may feel personal. That is the nature of the work. As a group, we will strive to support one another and not make judgments or accusations. There is no expectation of any type of activism in this group. Each of us individually can decide what to do with our new knowledge. We hope you will engage with us! The work is challenging, but change is never easy. We communicate via Google Group.  Please email to be added to the group.
