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. She has no idea the rope will become part of her family’s history. But 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. Based on the book by Jacqueline Woodson.
