On the next Fresh Air, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson talks about her new book Caste. It’s about the rigid racial hierarchy created in America, and why she says it qualifies as being a caste system. Wilkerson’s previous book about the Great Migration of African Americans from the south to the north won a National Book Critics Circle Award. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
