    1. There are 60 scenes in this series--they tell the enigmatic story of the Great Migration from 1914-1960; simply beautiful--told in the artist's own words, with an appreciation poem by the late Walter Dean Myers.

    2. Lawrence's "Migration of the Negro" narrative series put into picture book format. Would be awesome for an elementary school classroom.
