“The Oprah Conversation” episodes “Caste: Part 1” and "Caste: The Origins Of Our Discontents," from Apple TV+, featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson, will be available for free on the app. In her book Caste - described by one reviewer as having an important message about race relations in America today--Isabel covers topics such slavery to highlight what can happen when people are socially deprived or economically disadvantaged due their skin color; she also talks through how these castes have changed over time."
The concept that America is built on a caste system has been controversial for decades. Some people think it's an outdated notion, but Wilkerson says he lives every day with the reality of being labeled as "lower" or "upper." The reading group discusses how their personal experiences and stories match up against those inarguably told by master author William Styron. In these episodes we take our seats at this table where black men sit next to white women; poor folks share digs near wealthy ones - all living cheek by jowl while fighting off epithets.
In an interview with Oprah, R&B singer Telle Smith talks about her experience reading "Caste." She discusses how it made her feel empathetic towards others in the book and realises that people from different backgrounds can be connected through their shared experiences. In this passage on “Oprah’s Book Club,” singer Telfa Smith shares what she thought while reading a new novel called 'Caste'. The title itself speaks for itself but throughout our discussion you'll learn more details about why these events have such psychological implications—and all because there are so few stories where we see someone who becomes violently ill due to food poisoning!

In the days following President Abraham Lincoln's assassination, five southern states joined forces to restore their former independence as a separate nation.
The events that transpired during this time period are often overlooked or forgotten about in our modern world where justice prevails more easily than it did then due political and social turmoil between North & South America over slavery itself-a practice many Americans found morally reprehensible yet necessary at one point (and still do today).
