Where: Library of Virginia, Lecture Hall

Join us for a talk by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson on The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration, her moving masterwork chronicling the migration of nearly six million black citizens from the South to the northern and western cities of the United States between 1915 and 1970.  Using interviews from over a thousand people and previously untapped data and official records, Wilkerson presents a fascinating assessment of how this unrecognized exodus changed the face of America.
