“Overground Railroad is the story of a family's journey north during the Great Migration. Ruthie narrates; she and her Mama and Daddy are leaving the fields of North Carolina for New York City aboard the Silver Meteor: "No more working someone else's land," Mama says. When the train crosses from the segregated South into the North, porters tell “everyone in the colored section to sit where they want.” Some white passengers put their hands over empty seats, but the three find “smiles from new neighbors." --Publishers Weekly

The family's hopeful journey to find better jobs, homes and rights shows readers a major moment in the large scope of African American history. . . --Shelf Awareness
