NEW YORK.- The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture presents In Motion: The African-American Migration Experience, through Saturday, April 30, 2005. By boat, on foot, by train, car, and plane, Africans and their descendants have crossed oceans and land, sailed up and down rivers, and put down roots and pulled them up again. Like Maya Angelou, Harry Belafonte, Wyclef Jean, Barack Obama, Edwidge Danticat, Ossie Davis, Colin Powell, 35 million African Americans are heirs to migrations that have shaped this country and the African Diaspora. With images, manuscripts, photographs, maps, and music, In Motion: The African-American Migration Experience tells the story of a people whose movements over the last 500 years, both coerced and willing, inspired a culture and shaped a nation. In Motion: The African-American Migration Experience was made possible by a grant from the congressional Black Caucus administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
