The Warmth of Other Suns - Common Read @ UNI

Join the UNI Cornerstone courses in reading this year's common read book, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration, by Isabel Wilkerson. One of The New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of the Year.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. Wilkerson compares this epic migration to the migrations of other peoples in history.
