Wandering in Strange Lands: A Daughter of the Great Migration Reclaims Her Roots by Morgan Jerkins


I'm once again in awe of Morgan Jerkins' incredible writing talent (and kicking myself AGAIN for not trying to get my stuff published when I see someone my age so successful). Jerkins' interweaves the personal narrative with historical fact in a smooth, engaging writing style. She educated me on so much BIPOC American history that I was reminded once more how ignorant I am about the complicated, intricate racial history of this country. I would put this on a required reading list for people who want to learn more about the American history they don't cover in school and how that still impacts present day race relations.
