Social Justice Reading Group

Racecraft and Caste

Sign up by September 27

Having trouble signing up for this group on Realm? Email Shirley and she will add you! cathedral@incarnationgc.org

This fall, the cathedral community is invited to read two books on racial justice in the American context. The books are: Racecraft: The Soul of Inequality in American Life by Karen E. Fields and Barbara A. Fields and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson.

Charlie Heller said of Racecraft, "The Fields sisters dive through sociology, history, and science to reach the material truth: race is a product of racism, not the other way around." Oprah Winfrey said of Caste, "Required reading for all of humanity."

Join the Social Justice Reading Group on Realm to be a part of discussing both books throughout the fall. Groups will be scheduled based on the availability of those who sign up, with both in-person and online meeting options.

Sign up by September 27!
