LOMED Book Club – Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

free

Join us for a discussion of Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson.

In Caste, the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.

“As we go about our daily lives, caste is the wordless usher in a darkened theater, flashlight cast down in the aisles, guiding us to our assigned seats for a performance. The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power—which groups have it and which do not.”

This program is free and open to the public. Registration is required to access the Zoom session. RSVP by emailing Tzipi Altman-Shafer at tziporaha@milwaukeejewish.org.

Buy Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents from Jewish Museum Milwaukee’s Online Store, offering curbside pickup and shipping.

A LOMED (Learning Opportunity for Milwaukee Educators) program offered by the Coalition for Jewish Learning and in partnership with Jewish Museum Milwaukee of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
