Book Discussion Via Zoom -The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson
Sponsored by the Center for Racial Justice and the “New & Right Spirit” antiracism program
January 12 – March 9, 2022 (no session March 3 – Ash Wednesday) 6:30 - 8 pm EST via Zoom
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson tells the story of the 55-year exodus of almost six million people of African-descent as they changed the face of America. The story is told through the lives of three incredible people—who fled the South in search of better lives and greater equality.
Join Ms. Courtney Williams, doctoral student and the Huel D. Perkins Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Louisiana State University and Rev. Gary Smith, director of the Center for Racial Justice, as they create “brave multiracial space” to learn from these historical figures and one another.
The book discussion will run Wednesdays, January 12 thru March 9, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. EST.
We will take a one-week break on Ash Wednesday, March 3. The book can be purchased through a variety of bookstores, however, we encourage you to purchase it through a black-owned book seller (options in every state).
