Here’s what I found interesting while doing my research proposal!
The Great Migration was “the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North, Midwest and West from 1916 to 1970.” Many left because of lack of economic opportunities and because of the segregation laws. They went north for the large opportunity of industrial work. I learned about this and I thought it was very interesting. I never knew about it and I don’t recall ever learning about it in school. I knew many blacks moved north for somewhat of a better quality of life but I didn’t know the number was large and that it was specifically called The Great Migration.
