44. Interview with Isabel Wilkerson, Part 2.

44.  Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson rejoins us to finish discussing her book The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration, which depicts the move of African-Americans away from the Jim Crow South to the north and west.  We focus on the experience of Dr. Robert Foster, who moved from Monroe, LA to California in search of opportunities to practice his profession.  We also learn more about the experience African-Americans had living in north Louisiana in the 1950s.
