Caste, the Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson

This is what Penny Welch wrote about the book:
“As a lifelong seeker of ways to recognize and undo my own racist assumptions, and wanting to encourage others to do the same, this book has dug deep into my psyche by offering culture, history, personal accounts, psychology and sociology that have informed me in so many ways. Now I’d love to be in conversation about it and hear others’ views on how it has affected them as well.”
