Title: Caste: The Origins of our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson

Reviewer: Patricia Larke, Board Member at Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network and Host Home Program Manager for The Center for Youth Services, Inc.

In this brilliant, deeply researched narrative, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Wilkerson outlines eight components that underlie caste systems across civilizations, and examines how the unspoken caste system has shaped America, demonstrating how even today our lives are still defined by a hierarchy of human rankings. “The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power—which groups have it and
which do not.”
