From the Paper:"A remarkable statement on the social history of the United States, the Field to Factory Exhibit at the National Museum of American History offers the viewer the opportunity to step briefly back in time and experience elements from the Great Migration of an American people. This period, (1915-1940) is an important span of time for the entire world to consider. While we are taught about the Civil War, slavery, and the Civil Rights Movement, we often fail to comprehend the significant changes that took place in the United States because of the courage of a race that refused to be enslaved forever. This exhibit speaks, through visual and audio means, about the lives of the African American people in the south, during their migration north, and presents evidence about their new lives in the northern United States."
