Pulitzer Prize–winning author Isabel Wilkerson discusses Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents.

Examining the ties between the American caste system and those in India and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson points to ways America can move beyond our artificial and destructive human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity.

With special guests, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Library Director Dr. Rhea Brown Lawson, and Rice University’s Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Alexander Byrd, who will engage in a conversation with Ms. Wilkerson immediately following her presentation.
