The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration
In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American 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.
This non-fiction book covers the migration of black people from the South trying to escape the harshness of Jim Crow laws. It delves into the lives of three people and reveals how their journeys didn't always end the way they hoped.
We think you'll enjoy reading The Warmth of Other Suns if you liked The Help, A Mighty Long Way (CMC's Common Reader selection), and The Dry Grass of August. We have print and e-book copies available in our catalog.
