Summary
"[The film] chronicles the great migration of African Americans from the rural South to the cities in the North and West during and after World War II...[and] recounts the development of segregated urban northern neighborhoods through the personal stories of Chicagoans born in the Mississippi Delta. They share their bitter recollections of sharecropping, and their adventure north on Highway 61 to Chicago in search of well-paying factory jobs. On Chicago's South Side they built a thriving city-within-a-city. But just as the American Dream was coming into reach, the steel mills and stockyards closed, leaving the new migrants in public housing projects and inner-city despair." -- Container
