About this Event

“Required reading for all of humanity” ~ Oprah Winfrey

“Caste” by Isabel Wilkerson was published in August of 2020 and since its release has created quite the buzz in conversations from the dinner table to the White House.  The book discusses the process of 400 years of racism and racial hierarchies, exploring the unspoken caste system that defines human divisions. 

Beginning March 4th @7:00 PM join us for online gatherings, every Thursday, to discuss a section of the book. If you would like to participate, but do not want to actively engage in the conversation aspect of this event, that is okay! Discussion questions will be distributed beforehand. All levels of discussion are welcome.

This event will be curated by Danielle DeSutter, a Fanshawe student and self-proclaimed bookworm. Discussing this book with all of you will collide her two passions: literature and social activism. 

If you are looking for a physical copy of the book we suggest check out this list of Black Owned and Indigenous Owned Bookstores. See list here.
