Reverse Migration: Coming Home

We know of the great migration of Black farmers to major northern cities earlier in the twentieth century. Now, in a reverse migration, there is an emerging North Carolina Black middle class made up of the children and grandchildren of former farmers. Is there a relationship between the migration north and the migration south? How is the return of these families impacting North Carolina economically and politically? How is the New South embracing the “prodigal" sons' and daughters' return? Ms. Stewart's presentation will examine these questions in detail.
