Nature and the Great Migration in Chicago

Towering skyscrapers dotting the Lake Michigan coastline, “snowy winds,” “blistering suns,” and roaring streets described what Richard Wright aptly called the “iron city,” or the city of Chicago.

It is home to a large African American population, many of whom have roots in the Great Migration that brought literary giants such as Wright and Langston Hughes to its shores.
