While still plagued by the â??separate but unequalâ?? ruling of â??Plessy vs. Fergusonâ??, as well as Jim Crow laws, blacks seeking a better life began the northern migration from the south. Blacks gained employment in the industrial centers of America and sent for the families to begin the road to economic equality and pursuit of their American Dream.
