NPR Summary

The story of one family's journey north during the Great Migration starts with a little girl in South Carolina who finds a rope under a tree one summer. For three generations, that rope is passed down, used for everything from jump rope games to tying suitcases onto a car for the big move north to New York City, and even for a family reunion where that first little girl is now a grandmother.
