This UA System collaborative event will feature Isabel Wilkerson, author of the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestsellers: The Warmth of Other Suns, and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents.
During her presentation, Wilkerson will discuss Caste, which was published in August 2020 to critical acclaim. In the book, Wilkerson reveals “a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in the United States" as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how the U.S today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.
Hosted by the University of Alabama Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and co-sponsored by the University of Alabama in Huntsville, UAB Office of Diversity, Equity Inclusion, and UAB Institute for Human Rights.
