In her highly acclaimed book, Isabel Wilkerson casts light on an unseen phenomenon in America – the caste system. Wilkerson contends that race and caste can and do coexist in the same culture and serve to reinforce each other. For Wilkerson, race, in the United States, is the visible agent of the unseen force of caste. “Caste is the bones, race the skin.”
