Caste: The Origin of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson

This month US2 encourages you to read Caste, a book that addresses both racism and classism in the United States and maintains that the intersection of the two is what continues to separate and segregate us. Wilkerson compares three systems of caste from India, the Third Reich in Germany, and here, in America. US2 hopes that you can read this book in a community, with others, and discuss the questions below with an attitude of curiosity and deeper understanding.

Caste is available on,, from your local independent bookshop, and from your local library (often downloadable to your device with a free library card!)
