The Great Migration saw more than six million Black Americans leave the South for destinations across the U.S. at the start of the 20th century. This incredible dispersal of people transformed nearly every aspect of Black life and culture.
Opening October 30, A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration will explore the impact of the Great Migration through newly commissioned works by 12 acclaimed artists: Akea Brionne, Mark Bradford, Zoë Charlton, Larry W. Cook, Torkwase Dyson, Theaster Gates Jr., Allison Janae Hamilton, Leslie Hewitt, Steffani Jemison, Robert Pruitt, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, and Carrie Mae Weems.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 30!
