Peacebuilder Book Club: Discussing "Caste" by Isabel Wilkerson on January 15, 2022 at 3:00 pm Eastern

In "The Warmth of Other Suns", Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson educated readers about the United States' greatest but largely unknown migration, that of African Americans fleeing Jim Crow and poverty in the South to find better lives in the north and west. In "Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents", she once again deftly leads readers into unfamiliar terrain. She argues that although the concept of caste feels like terra incognita for Americans, the US is in fact one of three best examples of caste systems, along with India and Nazism. Using history, political analysis, personal anecdote, and her own gifted writing, Wilkerson expands our understanding of this silent yet unbreakably rigid hierarchy that undergirds our society.
