Created by Homer Jackson
A collage that focuses on the migration of black Americans from the South to the North. Passage examines the migration's physical, metaphysical, psychological, and social aspects and their effects on black communities and the nation as a whole. Stories, music, the voices of elders, excerpts from old newsreels, country blues and urban jazz, the sounds of rural America and of metropolitan areas, poetry, and dramatic skits make this an entertaining and informative work. Commissioned by New American Radio.
