Pulitzer Prize winner and National Humanities Medalist Isabel Wilkerson is the keynote speaker at the Annual Oral History Association Meeting. 

Wilkerson is the author of The New York Times bestseller The Warmth of Other Suns and the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction.

In her bestselling and award-winning masterwork, The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the greatest untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life. To this day we have barely understood the full impact of this movement that was driven not by one single leader, but by six million Americans seeking political asylum in their own country. This migration reshaped culture and politics, North and South, and set in motion the current racial challenges and disparities we now face as a country.
