‘A Catalyst for Humanity’: A Conversation with Isabel Wilkerson

February 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

What are the invisible social strata that define and divide America? How does this unseen ranking underlie racism? And how do caste dynamics systematically lessen the value of Black lives? Join Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson, author of Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, and esteemed social scientist David Williams for a conversation about embedded power inequities–and their cost to us all. Moderated by CNN anchor, Don Lemon.

Michelle A. Williams, Dean of the Faculty at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is pleased to present
