“The half ain’t been told.”


From a slide show at The New Yorker, Jack Delano’s 1942 photo of a Chicago Defender newsboy.

The images accompany an article from last week’s issue by Jill Lepore, reviewing oral histories of the Great Migration, the 20th Century journey of six million African-Americans from the South to the northern cities of the US, and in particular a recent book by Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns.
