The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson

 This book tells of the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. Wilkerson compares this epic migration to the migrations of other peoples in history, interviewing more than a thousand people, and gaining access to new data and official records to write this definitive and vividly dramatic account of how these American journeys unfolded.
