Brown Bag

Seeing race is not the problem. Refusing to care for the people we see is the problem. The fact that the meaning of race may evolve over time or lose much of its significance is hardly a reason to be struck blind. We should hope not for a colorbind society but instead for a world in which we can see each other fully, learn from each other, and do what we can to respond to each other with love.

— Michelle Alexander, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

Being safe and socially distanced remains necessary as ATW members may be at high risk for contracting COVID. All face-to-face events have been postponed until further notice. We have planned some remote activities that you can take part in. See our Upcoming Events.

Brown Bags are held on the first Friday of each month at the Williamsburg Baptist Church on 227 Richmond Rd. We invite members and subscribers to bring their lunch and engage with a speaker(s) in a lively discussion on issues pertinent to the community, particularly around issues concerning race and racial understanding.
