The Great Migration and Social Change in Rochester

Monday, October 21, 2019
12:00 p.m.  Ellen Stowe Room in Garlock*

Democrat and Chronicle education journalist Justin Murphy will discuss how the nationwide Great Migration of African-Americans from the South to the North throughout the 20th century manifested in Rochester, how those migrants were greeted and how they changed the face of the community forever. The research comes from Murphy's forthcoming book on the history of school segregation in Rochester.

Justin Murphy is the education reporter at the Democrat and Chronicle, where he has worked since 2012. Before that was a reporter for The Citizen in Auburn, New York. He grew up in Penfield and attended the University of Chicago and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He is currently writing a book about the history of school segregation in Rochester.

 *Those attending are encouraged to bring their lunch with them.

Pepper era and finally the later years of Abbey Road and the White Album. The show progresses through Beatles music history from its beginnings to its ultimate end in 1969, with dynamic set changes and multiple costume changes.
