Discussion of The Warmth of Other Suns, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson.
A New York Times bestseller and National Book Critics Circle Award winner, The Warmth of Other Suns is the story of Ida Mae Gladney, who in 1937 left sharecropping and prejudice in Mississippi for Chicago; sharp and quick-tempered George Starling, who in 1945 fled Florida for Harlem, where he endangered his job fighting for civil rights; and Robert Foster, who left Louisiana in 1953 to pursue a medical career. Their stories help to guide readers through one of America’s greatest unrecognized emigrations: the decades-long migration of Black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life.
