The South, the North and the Great Migration: Blues and Literature

Here is a complex lesson that interweaves the history of the Jim Crow South and the Great Migration with the study of poetry, art, and blues music from the Harlem Renaissance. This plan helps young historians develop a deep understanding of this time and the experience of African-Americans that lived through it. This resource relies mostly on reading pre-selected materials and conducting class discussions. Included are three authentic assessment tasks.
