Next Bookclub Weds, March 10th from 4-6pm via zoom.
We'll be reading "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration" (2010) by Isabel Wilkerson, winner of National Book Award Critics Circle.
This work tells the story of the Great Migration (1915-1970) through the lives of three unique individuals: Ida Mae Gladney, who in 1937 left sharecropping in Mississippi for Chicago and eventually cast her vote for Barack Obama for Illinois Senate; George Starling, who fled Florida for Harlem in 1945, where he endangered his job fighting for civil rights; and Robert Foster, who left Louisiana in 1953 to pursue a glitteringly successful medical career and become personal physician to Ray Charles.
