ABL Racial Justice Study Group

Our study group meets monthly to discuss readings and films related to a racial justice topic. Attendees read/view the material prior to attending, and we come together to discuss.

In August, our meeting will take place on Thursday, August 24 in a private home. Meetings typically take place at Books, Inc. on Park Street in Alameda on every 4th Tuesday from 7:30-9pm.

Attendees may purchase each book at Books, Inc for a 15% discount. If a book is out of stock, they will special order it upon request.
