Think & Drink With Isabel Wilkerson And Rukaiyah Adams (Sold Out) says
Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson joins Rukaiyah Adams for a conversation about the Great Migration, the civil rights movement, and the reverberations of these historic events in Oregon and the United States today.

Wilkerson is the author of "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration." She spent fifteen years on the book, interviewing more than 1,200 people to tell the story of the nearly six million African Americans who, between 1915 and 1970, fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life.

Adams is chief investment officer for Meyer Memorial Trust and a fourth-generation Oregonian whose family was part of the Great Migration.

The conversation will take place Wednesday, July 20 at the Alberta Rose Theatre at 3000 NE Alberta St. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., and the event will begin at 7:00 p.m. Minors welcome when accompanied by an adult. Tickets, $15 to $25, are available at albertarosetheatre.com.
