Great Migrations: One Voluntary, One Not Most of the human cargo ferried from Africa across the Atlantic for the slave trade wound up not in the United States, but in sugar producing nations to the south. That's one of the surprising statistics in the exhaustive "Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade." The authors join us Thursday, along with Isabel Wilkerson, whose book "The Warmth of Other Suns" chronicles another great black migration, this one voluntary. Join us, Wednesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
