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

There is no way to give a rating to a memoir, especially one like this. It was so interesting to read how Morgan went on a journey to discover her family’s history.

I really enjoyed seeing not only what she learned, but also how she researched (who she spoke to and how she made those decisions). I liked how the story was a mix of memoir and history; how Jerkins integrated all she learned into what she knew about herself and her family, and how she perceived their world.

The section about Los Angeles was the most interesting to me as I am living and working in those areas. I will definitely be revisiting it and doing further research to understand the community.

Listened to this via ALC from Libro.fm.
