In celebration of African American History Month, volunteer gallery interpreter Leslie Yamshon is leading a 30-minute tour on the Great Migration, the movement of African Americans from the South to the urban North that transformed Chicago and other northern cities between 1916 and 1970. Discover how a marginalized African American population in the nineteenth century emerged as a powerful force in Chicago’s political, economic, and cultural life in the mid-twentieth century.
