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

aspalt, January 30, 2013

The previously untold story of the great internal migration of African-Americans from the Jim Crow south to northern cities from the 1920's to the 60's. It is told through the experiences of three very different but typical families against the background of the whole movement. Placing this migration in the context of external (e.g. from Europe) migrations to a new land of opportunity and peril is enlightening. Reads like a novel but well documented.

The combination of amazing jazz from the Newport festival set against the background of stunning photography of the America's Cup races is unforgettable.
