The great flood by Paolo Uccello( Visual )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La crue du printemps 1927, la plus dévastatrice qu'aient connue les États-Unis, a considérablement bouleversé le paysage culturel et géographique du pays. L'une des conséquences fut un exode massif des métayers. Des milliers d'habitants, la plupart afro-américains, trouvent refuge dans les grandes villes du Nord. Le blues acoustique de la région du Mississippi se transforme progressivement au contact des guitares électriques de Chicago. Musicalement, la "Great migration" des Noirs ruraux du Sud aux villes du Nord a vu le Blues de Delta s'électrifier et réinterprété comme le Blues de Chicago, le Rhythm and blues et le Rock 'n' roll. Les images d'archives réunies par le cinéaste Bill Morrison témoignent de cette période charnière de l'histoire américaine
