Art is ... Jacob Lawrence's African-American Migration Series (6 Pages)

You will receive one file of 6 jpgs. This series is sure to provide lots of thought producing discussions. It would be interesting to compare the Great Migration with the current Immigration problems in the US.

Jacob Lawrence was 23 when he finished his "Migration Series" of 60 paintings. Here you have six pages that look at some of his series, depicting the northward move of thousands African-Americans from the South to the North after the first World War.

1.DBAE Critique of No. 1, The Migration of the Negro

2. No. 3, A migration Picture with space for drawing

3. No. 27, Depiction of Family getting Railroad Tickets. They were given free passage to the North, provided they repay the tickets after they get jobs.
Space for drawing.

4. No. 31, No. 51 , New housing was great at first, but overcrowding led to riots and bombings later.
Space for drawing.

5. No. 45, Shows a family arriving in Pittsburgh, PA.
Space for drawing.

6. No. 49, 59 Shows a paradox in the North. There was still discrimination of a different sort, but the Southern immigrants could now vote.
Space for drawing.

Use of photographs of Jacob Lawrence's art work is used in accordance with the Fair Use in Education Act. Students awareness of US history and art will be enhanced with these pictures in a way that would be impossible to accomplish with the visual aids.

Most of these art worksheets are Open-Ended. Allow the students to chose how they want to finish the blank spaces. They can answer the questions or they can create their own reactions to Jacob Lawrence's art work. Please see my free "Open-Ended" Introduction for more information about allowing your students to create freely.
