Stories of the Women of Migration
7:00 PM
Stories of the Women of Migration
Presented by Dr. Linda Epps. The twentieth century fostered a new awakening among members of the African American community. They realized that an alternative to living in the Jim Crow South was available, and their thoughts turned north, which was still viewed as The Promised Land. Their migration north, known as the Great Migration, made race a national issue, an integral part of politics, social thought, and organization of ordinary life in the United States. The Great Migration was the first step in the full nationalization of African Americans. Come hear the migration stories of women who might have scrubbed floors, provided care for children or elderly parents, toiled in a sweat shop, or sewed sleeves in shirts or dresses. These women migrated so their descendants—unseen and unknown to many of them—might achieve the American Dream.  Read more...
