Book Study: Caste by Isabel Wilkerson - Session 1 of 3
For many of us, the word “caste” brings to mind the system of social hierarchy in India. Perhaps we feel badly for those at the bottom, the “untouchables,” who have no chance of working their way out of poverty. We might feel blessed to live in a country where hard work and determination is the key to moving up the social and economic ladder.

Isabel Wilkerson asks us to take a deeper look and realize:
“As we go about our daily lives, caste is the wordless usher in a darkened theater, flashlight cast down in the aisles, guiding us to our assigned seats for a performance. The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power—which groups have it and which do not.”

If you are interested in a challenging read and meaningful discussion about caste in the U.S., the Greenspon Center welcomes you to our book read! If you have questions, email Donna Tarney (tarneyd@queens.edu)

Americans and the Holocaust - Exploring the online Exhibit
Nazi Germany. . . Poland. . . Ukraine. . . Auschwitz. . . Dachau. . . Treblinka. . .
These are the places and names we normally associate with Holocaust Education.

New York. . . Chicago. . . Washington D.C. . . . Manzanar, CA. . .
These are some of the places we need to add to our lessons. Why? Because across our country civic and governmental leaders were making decisions that impacted the fate of European Jewry.

On March 11th, we will explore the USHMM’s online exhibit Americans and the Holocaust to find out more about this important piece of Holocaust history. Participants will engage with the online exhibit and come away with practical strategies to include in lesson plans. Email Donna Tarney (tarneyd@queens.edu) with any questions
