Book Trailer of the Week

February 5, 2011

In celebration of African American History Month, our next Book Trailer of the Week is for Isabel Wilkerson’s phenomenal The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.  Named one of the NY Times’ 10 Best Books of 2010, this beautifully written masterwork focuses on the years 1915 to 1970 when six million black Southerners undertook an exodus from the terrors of Jim Crow to an uncertain future in the North.  Combining extensive research with the riveting stories of three remarkable men and women who made the Great Migration, The Warmth of Other Suns is a bold, resonating portrait of a pivotal time in American history.
