*This summer, Power, Privilege, and Race Subcommittee will host two adult ed sessions to discuss director Ava Duvernay’s film “Origin”. The film weaves together author Isabel Wilkerson’s process of writing ofCaste: The Origins of our Discontents, the author’s personal story as a modern African American writer/researcher, and her realizations about structures and strategies used to maintain systems of domination in the US, NaziGermany, and India. We will discuss half of the film at each session.

 

In advance of the sessions Sundays, June 16 and August 18, Friends need to see “Origin”! We will gather from 12:30-2 pm on each date in Strawberry Creek’s Zoom room to reflect on the film with queries..“Origin” will eventually be available through the Berkeley and Oakland Public Libraries, and currently can be streamed for a fee from Amazon.com.

 

Friends who have not yet read Caste may want to do so, whether before or after the sessions. Pages 99-159 of Caste outline eight “pillars of caste”, Wilkerson’s identification of rationales and strategies for enforcement of caste systems, crucial to understanding her thesis.  

This calendar only covers events sponsored or co-hosted by our Meeting, plus Pacific Yearly Meeting's annual and quarterly meetings, as well as Friends General Conference annual session.  Committee clerks may request calendar postings by sending an email to website@strawberrycreekfriends.org
