Event Description

California African American Museum presents Pulitzer Prize-winner Isabel Wilkerson, the acclaimed author of The Warmth of Other Suns, discussing her latest book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, with award-winning children’s author Jacqueline Woodson.

Wilkerson’s new immersive narrative examines how America has been shaped by an unspoken caste system and the impacts of this rigid hierarchy of human divisions on our lives today. Linking the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, she explores eight pillars that underlie these systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, stigma, and more.

Purchase a signed copy of the book at Eso Won Books.

Please RSVP for Zoom instructions.
