Anti-Racist Resources and Reading List

As an independent bookstore and stalwart defenders of democracy, we offer this current list of books in an effort to support, expand, and challenge our ideas.

These titles are in demand all over the country, so they fluctuate in availability - one of those good problems to have.  We encourage you to order them from us and ask for your patience as they sometimes seem to straggle in.  Many are available electronically and in audio from our website.
