Join BJC for a discussion of The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

The story of hope and longing, three young people set out from the American South during different decades of the 20th Century en route to the North and West in search of the warmth of other suns.  They were forced out by the limits of the caste into which they had been born.  Ida Mae Brandon Gladney, George Swanson Starling and Robert Joseph Pershing Foster are among the six million African-Americans who fled the South during what would become known as the Great Migration.  This book interweaves their stories and those of others who made the journey with the larger forces and inner motivations that compelled them to flee, and with the challenges they confronted upon arrival in the New World.  Based on interviews with 1,200 people who participated in the Migration and on newly available census analyses and research into archival material, The Warmth of Other Suns tells one of the greatest underreported stories in American history.
