“Caste is essentially an artificial, arbitrary, graded ranking of human value in a society . . . It determines one’s standing, respect, benefit of the doubt, access to resources or denial to access to those resources. Assumptions of competence and worthiness and intelligence. Whether one will be protected by authorities or attacked by authorities. Caste is the infrastructure of our divisions.”
—Isabel Wilkerson, January 12, 2021
Please join Mosaic for our second conversation about Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. For this gathering, we will explore the pillars of caste in education in NYC and nationally—and specifically at HCCS—and how we can learn from Wilkerson’s insights to remediate them.
Find Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents at NYPL as a free e-book or order and pick up the print version at Sister Uptown Bookstore. The book is also available through Amazon.
