Slide 2

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. This bronze statue, erected by Aaron Sarr in 1996, depicts a man with a suitcase, headed northward toward a new life. Let your children witness this symbol of pilgrimage, and explain why this journey was significant to a black American in the early 20th century.

Next: Congo Square
