CASTE: THE ORIGINS OF OUR DISCONTENTS BY ISABEL WILKERSON

What is the difference between caste and race? How are they linked? Do we recognize the caste system in America? What are its origins? What does it mean for people’s lives today? These are some of the questions that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson explores in her new book. We will discuss these questions and our response as a people of faith when we meet in May. The dates are:

May 12, 7pm: Parts One and Two
May 19, 7pm: Parts Three and Four
May 26, 7pm: Parts Five, Six, and Seven

Summer Book Study Sessions

Thank you for joining us for this year’s Summer Book Study with Bishop Perry and Sister Veronica Mary, where we read White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.

This book is an insightful, vital and transformational exploration of the social environments that white people often find themselves in, and how we who happen to be white might begin to change how we approach the ongoing work of racial justice.
