What exactly is the great migration?
It is the widespread migration of African Americans from the South to the cities in the north.
They would migrate to try to avoid the racism that was in the south, and trying to get better job opportunities.
What they didn't expect was to encounter the same problems that were already in the south.
They were not welcome in any part of the country, because there was already a pre-established race based social system.
So it sucked to be an African American, no matter where you were in the country.
