During World War I nearly half a million black Americans abandoned their homes in the South and streamed into northern industrial centers. One million more would follow in the 1920s. Placing this "Great Migration" within the context of labor, urban, and Afro- American history, Grossman history, U. of Chicago analyzes how and why black southerners uprooted themselves and how they subsequently adapted their way of life to an urban, industrial environment. This study is a revision of the author's thesis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
