Caste: The Origins of of Our Discontents

by Isabel Wilkerson

It was at our 2012 Festival, through her masterfully written work The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson introduced us to the epic, decades-long migration of African Americans in the South to our Northern cities in search of a more prosperous life. In her highly praised new book, she explores the power of identity, race or class, that is the “wordless usher…. guiding us to our assigned seats.”
