ABOUT MAKING OUR WAY HOME:
Over the course of six decades, an unprecedented wave of Black Americans left the South and spread across the nation in search of a better life — a migration that sparked stunning demographic and cultural changes in twentieth-century America. Through gripping and accessible historical narrative paired with 40 illustrations, Making our Way Home explores issues like segregation and discrimination alongside the flourishing of arts and culture, activism and civil rights.
Imani shows how these influences shaped America’s workforce and wealth distribution by featuring the stories of notable people and events, relevant data, and family histories. The experiences of prominent figures such as James Baldwin, Fannie Lou Hamer, El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X), Ella Baker, and others are woven into the larger historical and cultural narratives of the Great Migration to create a truly singular record of this powerful journey.
