Kamala Harris: Why does caste matter?

"Wherever South Asians go, they bring caste".

In the third episode of Zooming In With, we speak with Dalit rights activist and the founder of Equality Labs, Thenmozhi Soundararajan, about why caste matters in the US in the light of Kamala Harris’s win, ways upper caste South Asians can be better allies and how it is time for Dalit and other caste oppressed peoples to heal.

Follow Thenmozhi on Twitter @dalitdiva and also her new podcast with Firstpost, 'Caste in the USA'.
