"Rich with historical detail and rigour"

A history of the multi-decade migration made by African-Americans from the South to the northern cities of the US, in search of a better life. Rich with historical detail and rigour, it’s also a page-turner in which Wilkerson uses three individuals to tell the story of the greatest migration in American history and how it reshaped the economy, politics, and culture of the nation.
