Begin your exploration of the Great Migration, when two million African Americans migrated from Southern states, in search of better schools, jobs, and to escape racial tension and violence. Through the stories of Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Paul Robeson, and other writers and performers, hear how a new African American identity was created.
