The movement of life forms away from the known for food or fortune, out of fear or force
The great migrations of humans out of Africa,
of birds over oceans
The dispersal of insects and seeds from around the world
The sorrowful forced migrations caused by war, famine, devastation of the environment and human greed
This is the theme of this exhibit: that migration is a natural force for all forms of life—that from the beginning the human species has moved—that we can trace our roots to those ancestors who left Africa.
We are all migrants with descendants who felt the loss of family, home and language, experienced a dangerous voyage, faced an unwelcoming crowd.
