“Caste” Reading & Discussion
13 June 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Beyond factors such as race and class, there is a powerful system that influences the lives and behaviors of a nations people – the hidden caste system. Written by Isabel Wilkerson, Caste links the similar systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany and offers the audience insight into how the people of these nations have been shaped by a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Throughout her book, Wilkerson explores the hidden eight pillars of caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, and stigma. Providing stories about people — including Martin Luther King, Jr., baseball’s Satchel Paige, a single father and his toddler son, Wilkerson herself, and many others— illustrates ways that the caste system is experienced in everyday life. Join Dayton’s Judge Gerald Parker and Judge Walter E. Rice along with Moderator Joseph Saks, Esq. in a discussion of this groundbreaking book.
