Map showing the Mississippi Delta and some of the cities that African Americans moved to during the Great Migration. Designed by CHM staff, 2018

Eleven-year-old Penny and her family are part of the Great Migration, moving from Mississippi to Chicago. Their first day in the city is full of new sights and sounds and meeting extended family members. Read or listen to A Bronzeville Story, then make a scrapbook page of Penny’s first day in Chicago. Share all of your creations on social media using the hashtag #CHMatHomeFamilies
