"Chronicles a black Chicago: The South Side community that burgeoned as thousands of African-Americans, exclusively from the South, settled in the city during the Great Migration. One of the first Western photographers to document the destruction of Hiroshima and the survivors of the bombing, Wayne F. Miller had just returned from his stint as a World War II Navy combat photographer under the direction of Edward Steichen when he received two concurrent Guggenheim Fellowships to fund his Chicago project. In addition to affording a glimpse into the hopes and hardships shared by a community of migrants, the images reflect the enormous variety of human experiences and emotions that occurred at a unique time and place in the American landscape. A superb testament to the genius of the photographer, to the spirit of the people the images portray, and to the moment in American history these photographs capture" (Publisher's blurb).
