Upcoming Events
Isabel Wilkerson: Race and the Great Migration
Enoch Pratt Free Library, 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201
Event Date:
January 12, 2011

Event Time:
7:00 p.m.
For almost 55 years, thousands upon thousands of black Americans from the South left their homes in search of a better future for themselves and their children. Their shared motivation was their inability to live with Jim Crow laws that made life intolerable, from very basic, day-to-day challenges and cruelties to the larger questions of education and success.  Their dreams were not necessarily realized in the urban cities of the North, however.  Now, we ask, how does this history inform our lives today?
Join us for a discussion with Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration, who will be interviewed by Sherrilyn Ifill, civil rights lawyer and associate professor of law at University of Maryland School of Law.
This event is part of OSI-Baltimore’s Talking About Race series, cosponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library, which continues to explore the many different facets of this complex subject.
