Chicago dreamin' the black migration ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"CHICAGO DREAMIN': THE BLACK MIGRATION combines dramatic sequences, historic pictures and personal reflections to recall a period of history in which a half-million blacks left the South to pursue a more hopeful future in the industrialized North. The [dramatic sequences trace] the progress of a black Mississippi family arriving on the South Side of Chicago at the turn of the century, and the direction their lives take in adjusting to Northern life. CHICAGO DREAMIN' looks at some of the major social and political forces that affected blacks in the early 20th Century, including the rise of black 'clout' at the polls and the 1919 race riots. Two of Chicago's most respected black citizens recall those turbulent times: Alfreda Duster, a retired social worker, and Dempsey Travis, author of 'An Autobiography of Black Chicago.' CHICAGO DREAMIN' was produced as part of a WMAQ-TV station effort marking Black History Month."--1983 Peabody Digest. Host Warner Saunders provides narration to link the events depicted in photographs and dramatized vignettes with the recollections of Chicagoans Duster, Travis, Lovelyn Evans and Scotty Piper
