The War Changes American Society:
African Americans follow Opportunity North
Thousands of African
Americans enlisted or were drafted
into the army and participated in
Europe, where they were
segregated on the battlefields.
Desiring a better living back
home, the Great Migration was a
movement of African Americans
from the rural South to the
industrial North.
African Americans were
pushed from the South by Jim Crow
segregation laws, racial violence,
low-paying jobs, decline of cotton
crop. African Americans were
pulled to the North by economic
prosperity, job openings, and aid.
What influenced African Americans
to travel north?
