Between 1916 and 1970, more than 6 million African Americans migrated from the South to the North. They wanted to escape racial violence in the South. This mass movement of people is called the Great Migration. This book explores the history of the migration and its legacy. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index.
