To find out what she needed to discover about the life-changing matters that her parents didn't discuss, Isabel Wilkerson interviewed 1,200 people over 18 months. She re-created one man's harrowing 1,500-mile car trip from Louisiana to California. She picked cotton by hand. She visited quilting clubs, senior centers and hospitals, took bus trips and attended funerals. She scoured census data and tracked down 75-year-old research reports. It took her 15 years to finish "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration," which picked up the National Book Critics Circle award for nonfiction.

Near the end he grew so fed up he began playing five guards, "five midgets" he would say later, in total disgust. He didn't throw any chairs, but Bob Knight is without doubt his mentor, as his players with the ringing ears can attest.Bobby Wilkerson started for Knight's 1975-76 Indiana team that went 32-0 and won the NCAA championship. Today he's the coach at 0-13 Maryland-Eastern Shore, arguably the worst Division I basketball team in the country.Wilkerson can deal with the endless bus rides, but not the endless losing.

PHILADELPHIA - Washington Nationals manager Frank Robinson experimented with his batting order during the last week of spring training, seemingly juggling leadoff hitters in an attempt to find the right fit. It was all for show. Robinson said yesterday he had decided "six days ago" to make Brad Wilkerson his Opening Day leadoff hitter, though Wilkerson hadn't been atop the lineup all spring. Endy Chavez held the spot until a week ago, when his anemic on-base percentage finally pushed him to the minors.
