Here is the video of my synopsis presentation of Caste: The Origins of our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson, from the December 17, 2020 Urban Engagement Book Club, sponsored by CitySquare.

I do not present synopses of books that I do not find worthwhile.  But, a thought about this book.

I have presented a number of books dealing with issues of racial justice throughout 2020.  They are all good.  But this one is the one that I would describe as the most important one.  It provides a sweeping context, and history.  And, Isabel Wilkerson is truly a great, engaging author. And, by the way, this book was a selection for Oprah’s Book Club.

(A few years ago, I presented her earlier book, The Warmth of Other Suns — another great book).

So, watch my synopsis.  Follow along on the handout.  Then…read the book.  You will understand more; you will feel more deeply; and you will better grasp and understand how deep the problem is.
