Explore the impact that the needs of wartime had socially, economically and politically on the Black population of the United States. Industry picked up tenfold and African American citizens emigrated out of the South to settle in Northern cities. These citizens joined in labor efforts at home and also as heroes abroad in the military. Join Curator Hari Jones and Chicago Historian Dr. Christopher Reed to discover how WWI and the Great Migration together led to a dramatic socio-cultural shift in the African American historical narrative and on the country as a whole.
