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

alynne, January 3, 2013

Portraying the experiences of 3 black migrants from 3 different decades, the author deftly interweaves them into the larger story of the mass migration of blacks out of the South in the years following WWII. Each leaves for different reasons, with different backgrounds, and experiences different levels of economic success, but the unifying desire to breathe "free" unites their stories and those of more than a million others whose stories and struggles were not recorded.

This is a "big" book about an important event, but the mixture of the personal stories and historical information made it a very fast read. Nothing dry or boring about it.
