"Home is where the Hatred is"

This article may seem outdated - it was posted on the Connexions Resource Center page online February 2011 - however, it is still relevant to social justice information, and today. The gripping, and traumatic descriptions at the beginning of this article - about African American history - pulls you in from the start. You can't help but want to read Ms. Wilerson's novel...

This article showcases a conversation with Isabel Wilkerson, "a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Boston University professor, who documents an unengaged history in her grand new text, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration, a dexterous and detailed look into what became of a movement—told through the trails of three central characters—without which Motown might have never found meaning and Jazz might have never found new notes, relegating John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Louis Armstrong to obscure footnotes in the book of time".
