Isabel Wilkerson's work is a masterpiece. The true stories of three families who migrated from the South to the North is easy to read even though the book is over 600 pages. This book got me thinking about my grandparents and why they moved from Georgia and Texas to live in Chicago. I wish they were alive today so I could interview them. After reading this book, I feel an even greater respect and awe for the generations of black people who had the courage to make the journey. I intend to somehow convey the beauty and relevance of their triumph to this current generation.
