WSG PRESENTATION ON AFRICAN AMERICAN “Migration Series”

In collaboration with an educational program at the Phillips Collection Museum, they presented original poems, dances, and dramatic sketches based on Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series, 60 paintings depicting the 20th century movement of African Americans from the rural South to northern cities.

In their presentations, a number of students noted that some of their own ancestors had been part of this migration that occurred between World War 1 and World War II.
