BAM: Isabel Wilkerson with Lynn Nottage

Live virtual event:
Tuesday, November 10, 10:00 AM
Isabel Wilkerson presents Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents
In conversation with Lynn Nottage

“Caste is the bones, race is the skin. Race is what we can see, the physical traits that have been given arbitrary meaning and become shorthand for who a person is. Caste is the powerful infrastructure that holds each group in its place.”—Isabel Wilkerson

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson ​is joined in conversation by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage. They take as their starting point Wilkerson’s deeply researched and immersive book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Drawing parallels between the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson outlines a revolutionary framework for understanding how caste plays out across civilizations, both historically and today. Beautifully written and wholly original, it’s an eye-opening story of people and history—and an examination of what lies under the surface of ordinary lives in America today.
