Wilson dramatizes the plight of African Americans during the Great Migration in Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. Seth and Bertha Holly’s Pittsburgh boarding house hosts a variety of travelers as they journey from the South to find opportunities in the North. When Herald Loomis arrives with his young daughter in search of his wife, the Holly’s tenants help him realize that he has actually been searching for himself.
