a thousand midnights

centennial of the start of the Great Migration

US | Short Documentary | 16 mins

This experimental documentary chronicles the contemporary manifestation of the economic and social histories of Black Americans who came to the north during the Great Migration in search of economic opportunities. The implications of their migration, and the lack of economic opportunity they encountered, has far-reaching consequences for Black Americans today.
