For African American history month, we will be discussing what has become a classic - "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration" by Isabel Wilkerson. Here is what Goodreads has to say: "From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. Wilkerson compares this epic migration to the migrations of other peoples in history. She 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." I'm looking forward to our discussion of this important story. Please join us!
