For the months of both May and June 2021, the book choice is Caste”, Author: Isabel Wilkerson.
Book Summary:
In “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents”, by Isabel Wilkerson, we’re going to go on a fantastic and heartbreaking journey of the reality of African Americans of today and the plights of their enslaved ancestors of yesteryear. You’ll learn where the prominent racial issues of today ultimately stemmed from and how those issues are threatening to not only tear this country apart, but also the very people whom they affect so strongly on both sides of the debate. You’ll also learn the consequences of major racial upheavals in government and just what effect they had long after they’d ended. It’s a book written to open the eyes of the American citizens to the reality of the caste system that still governs us and why it must be eliminated from our culture.
