Event title World War I and “The Great Migration” Lecture by Professor
Where: Wright Museum - Wolfeboro
Category: Special
 
Event description:

“The Great Migration” occurred during World War I when men and women migrated to industrial cities to search for military jobs which were in high demand. Many of these migrants were African-Americans who wanted to escape from being share croppers, a farming method that kept them in an endless cycle of debt. The migrants encountered discrimination: denial of services in the districts where they lived, violence, rejection by Northern blacks, and overcrowding in black ghettos. Yet the migrants’ cultural influence impacted cities, music, art, entertainment, civil rights, culture, and the meaning of what it is to be American.

 

Sarah Batterson holds a Ph.D. in American history from the University of New Hampshire. She has taught many courses on 19th-and 20th-century racial and cultural history.
