Title Profile & Character Information

The Warmth of Other Suns

Annotation
Wilkerson, the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer (in 1994, for feature reporting at the New York Times), tells the stories of three individuals to track the movement of African Americans from the South during the 20th century. Great expectations and an 11-city tour; pair with Ira Berlin's recent The Making of African America: The Four Great Migrations.
