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? NC Humanities Council Road Scholar, Ella Joyce Stewart’s presentation will examine these questions in detail.
Also, participants will be able to record their stories of migration that will be collected and archived in the Greensboro History Museum.
