520    In 1941, Jacob Lawrence, then just 23 years old, completed
       a series of 60 small tempera paintings with text captions 
       about the Great Migration, the mass movement of black 
       Americans from the rural South to the urban North that 
       began in 1915-16. Within months of its making, the 
       Migration Series was divided between The Museum of Modern 
       Art (even-numbered panels) and the Phillips Memorial 
       Gallery (odd-numbered panels). The work has since become a
       landmark in the history of African American art, a 
       monument in the collections of both institutions and a 
       crucial example of the way in which history painting was 
       radically reimagined in the modern era. In 2015 and 2016, 
       the panels will be reunited in exhibitions at The Museum 
       of Modern Art and at The Phillips Collection. This 
       catalogue grounds Lawrence's Migration Series in the 
       cultural and political debates that shaped the young 
       artist's work and highlights its continued resonance for 
       artists and writers today. An essay by Leah Dickerman 
       situates the series within contemporary discussions about 
       black history and an artist's social responsibilities in 
       the late 1930s and early 1940s. Elsa Smithgall traces the 
       acquisition and exhibition history of the Migration 
       Series. Short commentaries on each panel explore 
       Lawrence's career and technique, and the social history of
       the Migration. The catalogue also debuts ten poems 
       commissioned from acclaimed poets that respond to the 
       Migration Series. Elizabeth Alexander, honored as the poet
       at President Obama's first inauguration, introduces the
