Film Screening, “Goin’ to Chicago”
May 18 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The story of a group of African Americans who take a homecoming trip from Chicago to Greenville, MD serves as a vehicle to trace the story of the mass migration of African-Americans from the rural south to Chicago between 1915 and 1960. The migration story focuses on the racism, sharecropping, and unemployment that prompted migration from the south, and tells how African-Americans were able to build new lives in Chicago.
