In Motion: the African-American Migration Experience
Of the 13 most influential African-American migrations, only two (the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Domestic Slave Trade) were forced. This New York Public Library exhibition shows the strength and struggle of the African-Americans - as well as the transformation of culture and way of life - as they voluntarily immigrate from across the world to the Americas. The exhibition is divided into the 13 different migrations in history: the Transatlantic Slave Trade, Runaway Journeys, Domestic Slave Trade, Colonization & Emigration, Haitian Immigration - 18th & 19th Centuries, Western Migration, Northern Migration, Great Migration, Second Great Migration, Caribbean Immigration, Return South Migration, Haitian Immigration - 20th Century, and African Immigration. On the exhibition's website, learn about each migration with the help of selected images, maps, and texts.
