Michele Norris and Isabel Wilkerson share the stage to reveal personal memories and historic insights about the 20th century migration of African Americans from southern points of origin to northern cities like Pittsburgh. Wilkerson’s award-winning history, The Warmth of Other Suns, recounts poignant stories of leaving everything behind for a better life, and Norris’s memoir, The Grace of Silence, about her own family’s journey, is painful but triumphant.

A program celebrating Black History Month and the contributions of African Americans to Pittsburgh, presented in partnership with the United Black Book Clubs of Pittsburgh.
