Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: The Lies That Divide Us fast became one of the world’s most talked about books this past year for its clear-eyed survey of the unspoken social hierarchy that pervades history and our lives today.

Drawing parallels between America, India and Nazi Germany, the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist argues that race and class divisions are largely informed by a powerful, unacknowledged caste system that everyone knows in their bones.

Join Isabel, who will appear live via video, in conversation about the myths of meritocracy, the endurance of white supremacy and what we can do to dismantle the corrosive social hierarchy that persists throughout the world today.

This event is open captioned.
