The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

LabLuv, January 30, 2013

Through these people we learn not only of the hardships of life in a segregated South, but how they faced new and similar challenges in the North. Much has been written before about the Great Migration, but here we are presented with the complete extent of the movement and its after effects.
