The 15th book in my 2022 #FReadom quest - to read works removed or threatened in Texas schools and libraries - was Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. www.nationalbook.org/books/caste-the-origins-of-our-discontents/
Among many other insights, I was especially struck by Chapter 14, in which Wilkerson presented examples of upper-caste people "overriding the rightful role of lower-caste parents & their children." We see this caste power play in the current spate of book bans, curriculum reviews, & "parental bills of rights" (which parents' rights?).
