"In this installment of “Conversations at the Newberry,” Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Warmth of Other Suns," and James Grossman, Executive Director of the American Historical Association, discuss the exodus of at least 5 million African Americans from the South to the urban North between 1915 and 1960—and its legacy today.

"Conversations at the Newberry" is generously supported by Sue and Melvin Gray. This event is free to attend, and no registration is required."
