Today In African American History “The Warmth Of Other Suns”

This is one of the best books I ever read on "The Blackman's Reading Hour, Project Uplift Literacy written by Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns, publication date 09/07/2010. The book tells the story of the great human migration of black from the southern states to the Eastern, Central, and Western sections of America from 1910-1970. What an outstanding book. This book should be in every black and white home in America. It is an excellent read aloud book to discuss the topic of family ancestry with your children. There are not many books that should be staples in every home in America but this book indeed belongs in each and every home. I do love Isabel Wilkerson so much for writing this masterpiece. This book was featured on The Blackman Read Aloud Hour Project in 2017. It stands alone as one of the most powerful books I have ever read. Do yourself a favor on this Labor Day Monday buy The Warmth of Other Suns as well as Isabel Wilkerson’s newest book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent for a fuller understanding of the African American experience.
