SABA-DC Virtual Book Club: "Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents" by Isabel Wilkerson

On Sunday, December 13, SABA-DC’s Book Club will discuss Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson.  In this book—a New York Times bestseller and Oprah’s Book Club Pick—Wilkerson examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.  Wilkerson provides a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.

“As we go about our daily lives, caste is the wordless usher in a darkened theater, flashlight cast down in the aisles, guiding us to our assigned seats for a performance. The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power--which groups have it and which do not.”

When: Sunday, December 13, 3-4:30pm
