About the Event

Through the lens of her latest book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, Wilkerson will provide an examination of our entire social structure as an unrecognized caste system. She will, additionally, provide perspective on how looking back at the Tulsa Race Massacre allows us to reflect on how institutionalized racism passes through generations and influences future outcomes for racial hierarchy for a city and a nation. She will also provide perspective for how to respond to those who argue that race would be less of a problem if we left in the past the historical actions that were past problems.
