Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns is the definitive history of the Great Migration of African Americans from South to North between 1915 and 1975. Reading the book changed my entire view of the United States of America. It made me understand things I never understood before. It made me marvel at how much history gets lost between the bookends of slavery and the civil rights movement. Reading this book was like that drunken night when you finally get to know somebody, except the somebody is your country. And have you seen Jacob Lawrence's 60-panel Migration Series that tackles the same topic? YOU MUST. JEN GRAVES
