A #1 New York Times bestseller by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Warmth of Other Suns.” “An instant American classic about our abiding national sin…how brutal misperceptions about race have disfigured the American experiment”—The New York Times
In this brilliant book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.
