In the opening and explanatory panel to The Migration Series, Lawrence depicts a crowd of faceless, cloaked people amassed in a train station, fileing onto platforms marked “Chicago”, “New York”, and “St. Louis”, three very popular destinations for those fleeing the South, as the three cities offered industrious jobs for Southerners looking for work. The first panel of the series depicting the jumbled crowd demonstrates the massive nature of the Great Migration.
