In Motion: The african-American Migration Experience (Hardcover)
Product Descriptionby Howard Dodson and Sylviane A. Diouf; The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Across America, the ethnic and cultural diversity of the black population has never been greater, with a rich mix of African American, Africans, Afro-Caribbeans, and Central and South Americans. Taking a deeper look, you find descendants of slaves, runaways, and free people; you meet the children of migrants who left the South in search of a better life. In Motion is the first book that chronicles the two forced and eleven voluntary migrations to, within, and out of the United States that have created this diverse and vibrant African-American community.
