Migration panel 60. And the migrants kept coming.

In this final panel of the Migration series, everything comes full circle through the recurring motif of a train station (using the same colors as those prior). A large crowd of African American people stand shoulder to shoulder on a railroad platform, their bags and suitcases gathered readily next to them as they wait for the next train. Lawrence ends his series on an elliptical note: a prediction that the migration will continue for ages to come. His prediction was correct.
