The warmth of other suns : the epic story of America's great migration - Isabel WilkersonDirections & Maps
Pulitzer Prize-winning Wilkerson chronicles the decades-long migration of black citizens from the oppression and indignities of the South for northern cities. Intertwined with the general history of the period are the remarkable personal stories of three individuals from very different backgrounds and regions who migrated during three different decades. The author interviewed more than a thousand people and gained access to untapped data to create this thoroughly researched and superb account of a little known “immigration” within our own country.
