History Harvest Website is LIVE
The Digital History Harvest class offered in Spring 2019 asked students to publicize and prepare for a community event that invited members of Beloit’s African American community to share their stories and bring photos and artifacts related to the Great Migration. During that period of American history (from approximately 1915-1970), thousands of Blacks migrated from the South to seek employment in northern cities. Using the stories and the images gathered on that day, students have designed maps and websites that document the experiences of those who came to Beloit.
