I just finished this book and I must say it is one of the most compelling, thought provoking, mind shifting books I've read in a long time. It's my first eBook read, via the Nook app on my iPad. Being a child of the migration myself, my parents individually leaving North Carolina and settling in Washington, D.C. I am fascinated by the stories of the brave men and women who travelled North and West for opportunities the South wouldn't allow them. Having made my own migration further south and then to New York, without any barriers or thought other than this is where I would like to work and live I am reexamining everything. You just have to read this.
