Isabel Wilkerson SUMMIT Signature Series Talk and Book Signing – “The Great Migration and Immigration”
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Immigration has become an urgent topic in the U.S. and around the world. How do the Great Migration and immigration resemble each other, today? Where do they intersect and how do they differ? What can we learn from the cautionary tale of six million Americans fleeing repression within the borders of their own country? In this SUMMIT Signature Series talk at Agnes Scott College, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times best-selling author Isabel Wilkerson outlines why The Great Migration is ultimately the story of millions of Americans who became immigrants in their own country, all in an effort to be recognized as citizens. A book signing will follow the talk.
