Let's Talk Books - The Warmth of Other Suns|
Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of other Suns: the Epic Story of America's Great Migration will be discussed. “Wilkerson follows the journey of three Southern blacks, each representing a different decade of the Great Migration as well as a different destination. It’s a shrewd storytelling device, because it allows her to highlight two issues often overlooked: first, that the exodus was a continuous phenomenon spanning six decades of American life; second, that it consisted of not one, but rather three geographical streams, the patterns determined by the train routes available to those bold enough to leave.” - David Oshinsky, New York Times A Redwood City Together Program, co-sponsored by Redwood City 2020.
