The Great Migration Reconsidered – Race, Identity, and Labor in the 20th Century American City, March 8, 2018

28_1942_20_cccr_01“The Great Migration not only reshaped national and local politics, but also led to fundamental changes in the ways that African Americans in the urban north worked, worshiped, dwelled, and understood their place in the world. This cross-disciplinary conversation brings together two leading scholars of religion and economics to discuss the ways that migration shapes urban communities, as well as how new insights from historical Census records are transforming our understanding of the Great Migration.”

Professors Judith Weisenfeld and Leah Platt Boustan lead the discussion on Thursday, March 8, 2018, 12:00 noon in the South Gallery of the School of Architecture, Princeton University. For additional information, click here.
