The Warmth of Other Suns

In her book The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson gives a thorough account of the Great Migration (the mass exodus of over six million African Americans who migrated from the southern regions of the U.S. to the northern).

The "Black Exodus" was motivated by several factors and is a crucial element in America's history and culture. Wilkerson's investigative research presents a multifaceted approach to understanding the reasons blacks migrated from the south to the north.

Ms. Wilkerson spent fifteen years working on her book and had interviewed over a thousand people before settling on three key individuals who reflect the different waves of the migration period.
