あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.

From the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is one of the great untold stories of American history: the migration of Black citizens who fled the south and went north in search of a better life.

From 1915 to 1970, an exodus of almost six million people would change the face of America. With stunning historical detail, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson gives us this definitive, vividly dramatic account of how these journeys unfolded.

Based on interviews with more than 1,000 people and access to new data and official records, The Warmth of Other Suns tells the story of America's Great Migration through the lives of three unique individuals: Ida Mae Gladney, who in 1937 left sharecropping and prejudice in Mississippi for Chicago, where she achieved quiet blue-collar success and, in old age, voted for Barack Obama when he ran for an Illinois Senate seat; sharp and quick-tempered George Starling, who in 1945 fled Florida for Harlem, where he endangered his job fighting for civil rights, saw his family fall and finally found peace in God; and Robert Foster, who left Louisiana in 1953 to pursue a medical career, becoming the personal physician to Ray Charles as part of a glitteringly successful medical career.

Wilkerson brilliantly captures their first treacherous and exhausting cross-country journeys, as well as how they changed their new homes forever.

Tour de Force

Read this and learn...and love every word. A lyrical classic that gives voice to players in a history that was nearly forgotten.

a book to pass on to our next generations

Beautifully narrated. A perfect balance between the forgotten history of thousands of families and the extroardinary lives that survived to tell it to us. A masterpiece of oral history.

An Historical Masterpiece

I bought the audio book because I wanted to understand more about the Great Migration. A truly empathetic yet robust chronicle of black people's history expertly crafted through the lives of three people. So intimate an account that I felt Robert, George and Ida Mae were my family. Robin Niles was an excellent narrator. Her smooth voice made the listening time pass so quickly.
Thank you for a rare and exemplary piece of work.

Powerful stories in every way

I was transfixed for every minute of the narrative. this should be compulsory reading in schools. it brings home the history in a way that no standard history book can.

Thought provoking

An incredibly well written and thought-provoking book on immigration. So much in the book for anyone that has ever migrated to relate to.

A beautiful telling of post reconstruction migration

Such a lovely set of interlocking stories each representing hope for a better future tinged with a certain melancholy knowing you can never go home again. Robin Miles’ narration is superb, subtly bringing the characters to life. I didn’t want it to end.
