The Great Migration of African Americans from southern states to northern ones in the years of WWI though the 1960s is told through the eyes of three participants, Americans all, who made this internal migration to Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in the 1930s and 1940s. Wilkerson’s book is engaging told; she clearly was passionate about her subjects, being a child of Great Migration parents and an award-winning journalist. I loved this quote at the end of the book: ‘In the simple process of walking away one by one millions of African-American southerners have altered the course of their own, and all of America’s history.’ [Lawrence R. Rogers]

Don’t let the size of this book deter you! This book made me realize that my mother, who grew up in Tulsa, probably went to a segregated high school. I wish I could ask her about it. I also was confronted with the fact that my Italian immigrant in-laws could blend in with the white culture in ways these African American migrants never could. A thought-provoking book. Is the United States still blind to racism taking place today?
