Harlem On My Mind: The Great Migration

After painstainkingly scanning this book (I have a document feeder scanner, but still...) since it had great value for its art as well as portrayal of the era's history, I found it was online already, The Great Migration Columbia University. Yikes! Anyway, here's a slide show of it with a midi soundtrack entitled Promised Land. It's not entirely accurate as a track, since its own history comes from the westward migration of mid 19th Century pioneers. Don't tell Ken Jackson.
