Shonda Rhimes and out filmmaker Dee Rees are working together on a new project for FX. Warmth of Other Sons is the adaptation of a 2010 book of the same name. From Variety:

The book chronicles the movement of some 6 million African-Americans from the south into the north and western regions of the country from the period of 1915 to 1970. “Warmth of Other Suns” tells much of the story through the eyes of three characters who made the journey in different decades.
