Moving Onward and Upward! (Stories of the Great Migration 1917 - 1970)

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, 4:30 p.m.

Celebrate Black History Month! Join us for a special story time and visual art literacy activity paying homage to The Great Migration period spawned by southern-dwelling African Americans relocating north and out west in search of fair and equal opportunities to pursue prosperity and freedom.

The hopes and aspirations held by these resettled American families are timelessly reflected in the dreams and goals of many current immigrant families.
