The entire community is welcome to join as the Pocziks explore one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life.
From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost 6 million people changed the face of America.
These stories com from the book “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” This epic and acclaimed masterwork was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson.
