NEW DATE! Join the Head of School Book Club – Caste by Isabel Wilkerson

Need more time to finish reading Caste? We have moved the date of the Head of School Book Club to Tuesday, April 20 in order to give people more time to finish the book and join Head of School Percy L. Abram for a discussion about this important work. 

Tuesday, April 20
6:00 p.m.

Caste invites us to discover the inner workings of an American hierarchy that goes far beyond the confines of race, class, or gender. Poetically written and brilliantly researched, Wilkerson rigorously defines eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, heredity, and dehumanization. She documents the parallels with two other hierarchies in history, those of India and of Nazi Germany, and no reader will be left without a greater understanding of the price we all pay in a society torn by artificial divisions.
 
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, April 20 for this event. Click here to register.
