A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration

A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration illuminates the enduring impressions of the Great Migration through the eyes and work of twelve contemporary artists. Between 1915 and 1970, in the wake of racial violence and pervasive inequalities, nearly half of the country’s African American population left their homes in the rural South. Many migrated to cities like Chicago, Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, and Houston, while others relocated within the South. Between 1940 and 1970, the Bay Area’s own Black American population increased by nearly 300,000. The Great Migration transformed the economic, cultural, social, political, and ecological makeup of the United States.
