    Book Description:
    Perhaps the greatest migration in America’s history is the early twentieth-century movement of African Americans from the southern states to the urban Northeast and Midwest. For the first time ever, Up South captures the totality of this pivotal black experience in a single volume. Including photographs, letters, and turn-of-the-century items in the Chicago Defender, Crisis, and Opportunity, as well as writing by Zora Neale Hurston, James Weldon Johnson, Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, Arna Bontemps, Mary McLeod Bethune, and W.E.B. Du Bois, Up South is a moving and eye-opening anthology of African American literature, scholarship, and journalism from the first half of this century.
