The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson Overshadowed by the news of World War One, what would come to be known as “The Great Migration” began in the nineteen-teens. Between 1915 and 1970, over six million African Americans would leave the states of the old Confederacy for Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and other northern cities. Using the most up to date research and a close reading of census data, New York Times journalist and Boston University professor Isabel Wilkerson recounts the journey of three African Americans who made the trek North, providing insight into one of the largest migrations in modern history.

The Prince Of Cacuyos, Richard Blanco When he was asked to read one of his poems at President Obama’s second inauguration, Richard Blanco achieved several “firsts.” He was the first openly gay man, the first Latino, and the first immigrant to serve as an inaugural poet; and at age 44, he was also the youngest. The Prince of Cacuyos describes part of Blanco’s journey to the national stage, focusing on his childhood as a Cuban immigrant in Miami. He chronicles his struggles navigating the world of his Cuban-American community and his desire to see a world beyond it. Though often humorous, The Prince of Cacuyos also describes the darker side of Blanco’s childhood as he came to understand his sexuality, struggling with a family that did not welcome it.
