Monument to the Great Northern Migration
Time Out says
Alison Saar's 1994 work, "Monument to the Great Northern Migraton," honors the six million-odd African-Americans who traveled from the South to Chicago from 1910 to 1970. The sculpture depicts a man oriented and pointing northward, suitcase in hand, his entire outfit made of the worn soles of his shoes. It's situated at the historic entrance to Bronzeville, a neighborhood that boomed thanks to the Great Migration.
