Tribute to the Great Migration


Martin Luther King Drive
Chicago, Illinois

In the early 1900s, tens of thousands of African-Americans fled the brutal treatment and laws of the south to move north toward opportunity and, for some, freedom.

Let your children witness this symbol of pilgrimage, and explain why this journey was significant to a black American in the early 20th century.
