"This work tells the story of the
Great Migration and the Second Great Migration, the movement of African Americans out of the
Southern United States to the Midwest, Northeast and West from approximately 1915 to 1970.The book intertwines a general history and statistical analysis of the entire period. It includes the biographies of three persons: a sharecropper's wife who left
Mississippi in the 1930s for
Chicago, named Ida Mae Brandon Gladney; an agricultural worker, George Swanson Starling, who left
New York City in the 1940s; and Robert Joseph Pershing Foster, a doctor who left Louisiana in the early 1950s, moving to
Los Angeles." -Wikipedia
