University Press of Mississippi

This chapter considers the impact of dramatic geographic and social trends that preceded and matured during World War II. The massive migration from the rural South to cities in the North brought upheaval to many African American families. In addition, racial hostilities rose as whites and blacks were thrown together under the pressures of war. The results were often seen in racial hatred, civil unrest, low African American morale, and increased membership in organizations representing African Americans.

Keywords:   Great Migration, President Woodrow Wilson, W.E.B. DuBois, Race riots, African American organizations
