TIMES IS GETTIN’ HARDER: STORIES OF THE GREAT MIGRATION

“Times is Getting’ Harder: Stories of the Great Migration” is a landmark portrait of one of the most significant yet little-noted shifts in American history: the migration of African Americans from the Jim Crow South to the cities of the North and West. It is a complicated tale, with boundless questions of citizen’s constitutional rights of race, gender, power, politics, religion and class. Even though The Great Migration occurred between 1915– 1970 questions around the veracity of these rights are still being obliterated even now. This original script includes stories re-counted through narrative, music, and slides depicting true accounts of both individual lives and collective experiences of people who participated and witnessed The Great Migration firsthand. Written by local playwright, Michelle Dillard, directed by C2C Artistic Director, Fannie Belle Lebby.
