Storyboard Text

  • 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.
