Isabel Wilkerson is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of the New York Times Best Seller, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. In conversation with Adena Kirstein, Executive Director of GW Hillel, Wilkerson will discuss her recent work, which links the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany.

Wilkerson writes of topics that are difficult to read about, but her work is powerful, necessary, and comes at a pivotal moment in time for our country.
