Isabel Wilkerson – The Warmth of Other Suns
In a story of hope and longing, three young people set out from the American South during different decades of the 20th Century en route to the North and West in search of what the novelist Richard Wright called "the warmth of other suns."

Ida Mae Brandon Gladney, George Swanson Starling and Robert Joseph Pershing Foster are among the six million African-Americans who fled the South during what would become known as the Great Migration, a watershed in American history. This book interweaves their stories and those of others who made the journey with the larger forces and inner motivations that compelled them to flee, and with the challenges they confronted upon arrival in the New World.

A skilled military engineer, he helped defend Saratoga from British attack, and designed the fortress at West Point. These talents soon won American admiration. Kosciuszko became a close friend of Thomas Jefferson, who described him as a “pure son of liberty”.
