The flight of 6 million Black Americans from the brutal caste system of the Jim Crow South is documented in Isabel Wilkerson's "The Warmth of Other Suns." The Pulitzer Prize-winning Author is interviewed by Sandra King and Raymond Brown on her 13-year effort to create a narrative for the largest migration in U.S. history, which she calls "the most under-reported story of the 20th Century."
