Time’s a Gettin’ Harder: Stories of the Great Migration

Although emancipated, the hopes of freedom were dashed during the Reconstruction Era, crushed further by Jim Crow.  African-Americans’ burning desire to control their own destinies led to the difficult decision to pull up long-planted roots and journey into the unknown.

The stories will recount through narratives, music, and slides that will describe true accounts of individual lives and collective experiences of people who participated in and witnessed the Great Migration firsthand.
