Wilkerson was interviewed by MPR’s Stephen Smith as part of the Broadcast Journalism Series sponsored by the station and St. Thomas’ College of Arts and Sciences and its Communication and Journalism Department.

Wilkerson is the first African American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in journalism and is the author of the multiple-award winning The Warmth of Other Suns, in which she chronicles the decades-long movement of blacks out of the Jim Crow South into the North, Midwest and West in search of opportunity and freedom.
