Land of Hope by James R. Grossman

Book Description

Grossman's rich, detailed analysis of black migration to Chicago during World War I and its aftermath brilliantly captures the cultural meaning of the movement. "A vivid portrayal of an archetypical modernizing experience--peasants pulling up roots, moving to distant cities, and seeking to adapt to the strange new world of industrial capitalism."--George M. Fredrickson, Times Literary Supplement
