Pittsburgh and the Great Migration: Black Mobility and the Automobile
As a Publication Assistant and a Research Assistant for the Frick Pittsburgh, I researched and obtained photography credits for the Pittsburgh and the Great Migration Exhibit which opened on May 6, 2023 in the Car and Carriage Museum. In addition, I created a timeline of both known and obscure African American events that coincided with the first and second waves of the Great Migration from 1915-1955, which is a feature part of the exhibit. I also served as a proofreader and oversaw due dates for the accompanying museum catalog entitled Pittsburgh and the Great Migration: Black Mobility and the Automobile.
