How does the concept of “caste” apply to the District, particularly to sometimes intersecting Black, Jewish, and white identities? This week’s program revisits a fall 2020 conversations with Dr. Natalie Hopkinson, associate professor of communication, culture and media at Howard University. Discussion includes the eight pillars of caste as Isabel Wilkerson outlines them in her book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, book, and touch on some of the ways caste explains DC’s political landscape today. Tune in to We Act Radio, Wednesday, Feb 10, at 11 a.m. EASTERN.

Several books by Dr. Hopkinson are now available via Charnice Milton Community Bookstore’s “Bookshop” site. All purchases through CMCB Bookshop support local literacy efforts.
