The Great Migration
It’s one of this country’s most important stories, yet it’s not taught in our schools … and it’s rarely been told.It’s the story of a vast migration of 6 million African-Americans – former slaves, their children and their grandchildren – escaping the terror and humiliation of the South, hoping to finally find freedom in the North.
Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Isabel Wilkerson says her monumental book, “The Warmth of Other Suns,” was her attempt to honor more than a half-century of the difficult flight to freedom. Sandy King and Ray Brown talk to Wilkerson about the 2,000 interviews and 13 years that went into her groundbreaking work. Their conversation ranges from the horrors of the Jim Crow South to the implications for social justice today.
