Going To Chicago

Goin' to Chicago and African American "Great Migrations"
George King, Independent Documentary Filmmaker
Published: 2 December 2010

David Lindsey and friends, Goin' to Chicago, 2000.
This multimedia essay presents two excerpts and accompanying commentary from the film Goin' to Chicago, a documentary which takes as its subject the African American migration out of the Jim Crow South during the twentieth century. Director George King describes his approach to the making of this film, offering insights into its editing and construction.

"Goin' to Chicago and African American 'Great Migrations'" was selected for the 2010 Southern Spaces series "Migration, Mobility, Exchange, and the U.S. South," a collection of innovative, interdisciplinary scholarship about how the movements of individuals, populations, goods, and ideas shape dynamic spaces, cultures, and identities within or in circulation with the U.S. South.
