From: Tuesday March 23, 7:00pm
While working on her Pulitzer Prize-winning book “The Warmth of Other Suns,” about the Great Migration of African Americans out of the Jim Crow South, Isabel Wilkerson realized that the United States had an unspoken and deeply ingrained caste system.
In her new book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” a #1 New York Times bestseller and Oprah’s Book Club pick, Wilkerson explores the impact of this American caste system—a rigid hierarchy of human divisions—and its connections to caste systems in India and Nazi Germany. She documents how the Nazis studied American race laws as they planned the German Nuremberg Laws, and she points forward to ways that we can move beyond artificial and destructive separations towards a common humanity.
Join Wilkerson and Rabbi Angela Warnick Buchdahl for a conversation about Caste, the legacy of the Holocaust, and what lies under the surface of American life today.
This event is organized by the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
