The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

This event is sold out

In this epic masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winner Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of U.S. history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. The author interviewed more than a thousand people and gained access to new data and official records, to write this definitive and vividly dramatic account of how these American journeys unfolded, altering our cities, our country and ourselves. As a reminder, the author will not be present.
