African American Migrations in North America

Spotlight on Immigration and Migration

The history of African Americans in the United States is one fraught with discrimination and immense brutality, but also with strength and a determined spirit. In this book, readers learn the history of African American migration in North America, which is a topic supported by elementary social studies curricula. Readers will understand the push/pull factors involved in African American migration from the South and into Northern cities and the cultural developments that followed. Topics such as slavery and segregation are explained through age-appropriate language. Historical photographs and primary sources encourage readers to visualize history.
