We will be discussing Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. This book compares the white supremacy of the U.S. with the caste system of India. She argues that racism is a visible manifestation of something deeper, a structure that uses human differences (e.g. skin color) as a way to rank human value. We will use the book as a guidepost to host a discussion about race. Reading the book is not required but is recommended.
