The Great Migration and Motown
By the Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus
The Great Migration was the biggest under-reported story of the twentieth century. Over the span of six decades, around six million African Americans left Jim Crow behind and started over in northern cities. In the process, they transformed this country.

The Chorus tells that story in words and song, including some reworking of classics from Motown, a record label built by children of the migration.

Under the direction of Pat Wynne, the Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus has been presenting aspects of working people’s history and culture since 1999. Info- (415) 648-3457
