Six one-day workshops for fifteen community college faculty and secondary school teachers on African American cultural expression in Harlem, New York, and Chicago's South Side following the Great Migration.

The project will provide a professional development opportunity for community college and secondary school teachers to explore the relationship between the Great Migration and creative expression in the two largest centers of African American life: Harlem, New York, and South Side Chicago. This 18-month project, centered at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA), will enrich the quality of teaching and learning in the humanities through six full-day colloquia, including an orientation to archival resources at the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA. Participating teachers will read, hear lectures about, and discuss primary texts (fiction, poetry, essay, autobiography) as well as works of history and criticism and examples of music and visual arts. Each participant will also design a research project.
