Inspired by her own parents' migration, she devoted 15 years to the research and writing of "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration" (Random House), which won the National Book Critics Award for nonfiction. The Wall Street Journal called it "a brilliant and stirring epic, the first book to cover the full half-century of the Great Migration."
