From 1900 to the 1970s, twenty million white and eight million black Southerners migrated to the industrial cities of the Midwest, a neglected historical phenomenon which may be one of the most significant but unrecognized events in American history, the consequences of which are still being felt in the 21st century. Nelson, a professor of history at the University of California-Berkeley, has exhaustively researched this subject and tells it well, both as objective history and as a human story.
