The Great Migration: Exhibit at Big Apple's MOMA

From 1915 onward, six million black Southerners quit that region for points north in an epic tide of souls fleeing oppression and seeking opportunity. This spring, the NYC Museum of Modern Art will honor the Great Migration’s centennial by reuniting Jacob Lawrence’s famous paintings of this mass movement, a suite of 60 panels to be shown at MoMA for the first time since 1994.
