Isabel Wilkerson will discuss her Pulitzer Prize winning book:

The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration. 

In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and best selling 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.
