On Monday my book club had a discussion on The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. It is about the migration of Blacks from Southern states to Northern states from about 1920 to 1970. Millions moved North to escape the Jim Crow laws. The book follows the lives of three families and has a lot of history in it. I am amazed at how little I knew about that time in our country. The book is extremely educational but at times a hard read when she describes the torture and lynchings that took place. It was a good picture of how life was without any protection of your safety, not being able to vote, and living in substandard situations. One reason I am in the book club is to read books like this that I would not normally know about.
