Overview

Throughout the history of the United States, there have been many migrations of people searching for a better life. There was the Gold Rush in 1848 and the Dust Bowl Migration in the 1930s. But one migration that dwarfs all of the others in comparison is The Great Migration.

During The Great Migration, an estimated six million African Americans left their homes in the South in search for a better life in the North. The migration, which happened between 1915 and 1970, was arguably one of the greatest demographic shifts in American History.

In The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson, we dive into the riveting truth behind what drove this mass relocation by revealing the people's fears, hopes, and dreams.
