In partnership with Detroit Public Television and PBS Books, the University of Michigan Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series, we invite you to join two of our country's most accomplished storytellers, legendary PBS documentary filmmaker, Ken Burns, and award-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson, as they discuss the complexities of the American narrative and how grappling with the past might lead us forward.

 

Isabel Wilkerson is the author of The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, both of which are available at the SJR State Library.
