The Great Migration
The Warmth of Other Suns is the story of America. A nation built on immigration. @isabelwilkerson gives us a birds-eye view of the mass exodus of African-Americans from the South to Northern and Western US cities dating from approximately 1914-1970. The book traces the history of racism in the Jim Crow South as well as the reasons, successes, and failures of those African-Americans who left the place of their birth in order to seek better economic and social opportunities elsewhere in the United States.
