Jacob Lawrence's migration series is succession of sixty painting, made of tempera on board and measuring 12 by 18 inches each. The panels have captions that help tell the story of what in US history is called the "Great Migration" Today we take a look at the art that captured more then 6 million African Americans leaving mostly rural south and moved to the mostly urban North back in 1910.
