Isabel Wilkerson

Presented by Aronoff Center for the Arts at Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center, Cincinnati OH

Oct 05 2023
Isabel Wilkerson

The Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library’s annual Mary S. Stern Lecture features the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Humanities Medal, Isabel Wilkerson.

Join Wilkerson for a discussion of her critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller “The Warmth of Other Suns.” Chronicling one of the greatest untold stories of American history, Wilkerson writes of the decades-long migration of Black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life.

To this day, we have barely understood the full impact of this movement, which was driven not by one single leader, but by six million Americans seeking political asylum in their own country. Wilkerson will share with audiences how this migration reshaped culture and politics, North and South, and set in motion the current racial challenges and disparities we now face as a country.
