Preface by Thomas Cripps. Originally published 1920, uncovers the social, economic and political factors behind the largest black migration on record. Scott's monograph of black life in the northern cities covers in detail the causes of this migration, where it took place, what happened in the South when entire communities were depopulated, and what efforts were made to check the movement. St. Louis, Chicago and points in the Middle West and East studied particularily, closing with an accounting of remedies for relief taken by national organizations and public opinion regarding the migration. 122 pages, index, diagrams.
